Avantrum was created in the style of a traditional Roman serif font. My goal when creating this set of characters was to improve and refine how I control curves and anchor points. Especially when creating complex serif shapes, because it requires careful planning and measurements in order to made every character look uniform.
Learning to create serif characters means learning a whole different set of rules compared to creating a sans-serif font that usually consist of a constant line width across the board.
A Roman style serif font has varying widths for each character that simulates how Roman letter-shapes used to be hand written with a calligraphic pen.
