So I've designed my first "vanilla" body copy font. It was really just an experiment to see what I could learn by going outside my comfort zone. It may not break sales records, but I'm happy with it, and I ended up learning a lot!




Named after the astronomical term for when an orbiting body passes closest to its sun. Which happens to be today for planet Earth!

(Awesome! Just realized I spelled my own font's name incorrectly in the header! Woo hoo!)

Looks good, Nate. Not sure it's different enough to stand out from the crowd of standard fonts, but I hope it does well for you.

You know, this kind of makes me want to write a character named Perihelion.

And yeah, it's basic, but something about it has that touch of flair. It's just a hint, don't know exactly what.

I wouldn't expect to see this just on a menu or a memo.

Very cool stuff. The condensed version pops nicely. If I want to do a The-Nightly-News-esque spread, this'll look pretty good, I think.
