What a nice tranquil feeling you get from the wide forms of this font. The air of spontaneity was the most important thing about developing Rifleman. The forms were carefully and slowly constructed and then loosely traced with a paintbrush. Maybe the original drawings will become a font someday but i like to think that they won’t for some reason. Surprisingly Rifleman is left to only the bare essential elements, anything that wasn’t necessary was left out or removed.
The goal was to make it as lightweight as possible to make up for the intricate detail.
Rifleman is a surprisingly lightweight font offering lends itself to speedy typesetting!
