There's a lack of a nice free font or just SVG shapes for the numerals required to set the Ubuntu version number (9.10 for Karmic Koala). Using a font with non-rounded shapes works, but makes for a contrast where there could be more of a connection. The numerals of the Ubuntu Title font are rather harsh and too geometric. The Titling font has much better numerals, but at least the 1 doesn't satisfy me.
Three different relative sizes come to mind: full height, a balanced medium and x-height. I used the Titling font here:
I then started to wonder if using text figures (also called old style) could improve the picture. Entirely custom shapes:
In any case, I would like to see a single solution for 9.10, on banners, posters, booklets ... (and never the Title font )
All of this in one SVG
Just for fun, a 9.10 symbol:
Nice topic started here. I prefer the latest version because it is aligned better and gives more significance to the year number. @ -- ankere 2020-04-03 04:21:39 @
