The design of a typeface often takes a long way. You always start with an idea, maybe one element. Gradually it develops into a complex system of form and proportion. Sometimes the initial idea vanishes at some point. Legau started as a redesign, but the final typeface is quite unique. That is the reason why I avoid to talk much about the stages of the development. Legau has got quite some contrast. The terminals are always vertical or horizontal and in most cases sharp. The main set has got an upright or neoclassic angle in the round characters. It seems most organized and in control.
The stylistic set with an oldstyle stroke in the round characters seems natural warm and caring. The sylistic set with a flipped angle in the round characters seems disturbing and adventurous.
There are two stylistic sets with all different stroke angles. Set 1 has got a classic angle to the left. Set 2 has got the angle to the right. Quite expressive and provokative, because the classic broad pen does not apply to the form. It is not writable in that way.
In the standard set the main figures are tabular but with a proportional old style figure set as a feature.
Traditional and stylistic ligatures are also part of the feature set.
