I was at the High Desert Museum in Bend, OR when I saw a gorgeous hand drawn vintage map of Umatilla that contained one of the most beautiful swashy serifs I had ever seen. Mega inspiration to me for sure! When Travis Kochel taught me how to use Glyphs this was my first challenge. I was determined to make a unique swashy serif that was reversely contrasted and had a high desert feel. Contining to work on this typeface to this day, it has a ways to go! 

I am open to constructive criticism! How can I make this typeface better based on my goals? I would love to hear your thoughts or comments.
