I’m a bit new to type design and have a question for our European friends. (For the record, I’m in Arizona.)
I’m designing a geometric typeface for very young children to recognize basic letters and numbers. I have a “1” with a small flag, but in my travels in France I’ve often seen 1 with a curved flag starting at the baseline. Since I’ll be including European glyphs, should the long flag 1 necessarily be included too? Is this style taught in school, or is it an outgrowth of handwriting? I’ve included a barred seven and slashed zero.
