    Inspired by this sign: http://statigr.am/p/209497591589721585_3130084
    my time during Field Trip SF was spent sketching up this typeface. It's going well, and will be released on Lost Type sometime soon, making up one third of the Mission series of fonts.

    Sweet! The Field Trip project was a huge idea, and looks like it turned out well. Looking forward to seeing the final! The top loop on the 's' feels a bit tall to me, not sure.

    Nice tempo. Those uppercase 'F's are pretty funky.

    Agree with Joseph the 's' does feel unusually tall, but has a really great shape.

    It's really good to see this, the whole idea behind the trip is fantastic (and loved the shots on the blog). I love how well this script sets already, I particularly like your solution for the 'r' and how it connects to the following glyph. Nice low connecting stroke on the 'o' too.

    Thanks @Claire! Those two letters were tough calls, and I'm not sure I've arrived at the perfect solution, but we'll see what happens.

    I've been following the SF trip like Lindsay Lohan follows her cocaine trail. A real cool project for everyone to see - excited to see the final result of each font.

    Looking absolutely great! how do you know the type on the sign isn't already a font?

    I can definitely appreciate that. The one time I tried fiddling around with a script typeface, I got stuck really quickly on what to do with both of those. I really like that the 'r' isn't a classic cursive style one, it goes with the overall feel of the typeface. Anyway, curious to follow the progress!

    @Bart Vollebregt The type on the sign had visible brushstrokes, so I'm fairly certain it was hand done. There are certainly fonts in the same vein as this, but not quite the same.

    Mmmh. Dat legibility. Dat character.

    I have nothing constructive to say.

    I can't wait to overuse this font so much that it becomes synonymous with bad design.

    I've never seen an F like that before. It's lovely. Stop being so talented.

    P.S. Expect some $$ your way soon when I go back and repurchase all my Lost Type-faces

    Hovering over your shoulder while you knocked this out was a joy (and not just b/c I was farting) I will not say the word talent, b/c I know you earned it all. Skill is what you have and I respect you for that. for all the other things you do... i love you. #daddy #waytoodeepforadribblecomment

    My only issue is with the lowercase s. It looks a bit odd in relation to the other letters. But good job overall.
