Curious Grotesk
Curious Grotesk is a typeface that I'm currently designing. I've always loved the vintage grotesks such as Erbar, Kabel and Futura. Their geometric proportions along with their nearly even stroke contrast create a very approachable feeling. On the other hand, most grotesque typefaces (Berthold Grotesque, Founders Grotesk, Franklin Gothic) all have a more serious feel. I wanted to see if I could bridge the gap between these two distinct grotesk/grotesque typefaces.
What would happen if I combined two of my favorite typeface categories together?

Proposed characteristics of the lowercase forms. (Work-in-progress)
