Sugar & Vinegar is an old-fashioned font, with a “handmade” warm touch, avoiding sharp corners, grids or very strict guidelines, created with a fluid, personal and expressive line. The intention was to create a fun font to use and to look at, with a hint to classics and styles that illustrates La Belle Époque.
The inspiration for this font was initially a single question mark but it has evolved a lot since. The first release is made after eight month of intense development.
The font includes a large variation of alternates, some of which can be enabled as an open type feature if it’s not generated by default. Switching regular numbers into roman numerals is just one of the special open type features included in this font, besides the automated decimal highlights, the ordinal indicators or the fractions (the decimal number underlines are meant basically for price displays, inspired by old seven elevens). Open type fonts has two of my passions, design and coding, but like any software, the font is also “open” to bugs, so if anything is out of place, a bug report is always welcomed. Just let me know.
So far the font has the Extended-A and Extended-B characters, with most of the IPA Extensions in case someone needs these. If not, the special characters are always available to be included as alternatives for regular letters. A little sugar in the design, if you will. Or vinegar.
