I am need of a typeface with descenders that match or come close to the x-height. Can you recommend some?
System fonts or free fonts would be ideal.
Fontscape has a section with long descenders, but they are paid fonts.
These are some of the ones I found, they look very similar, but I'm sure you can find lots more if you do a search.
Canterbury Sans takes the height a step further. Since it's basically mono-weight, it would be a simple matter to compress the extender lengths for a logotype or headline.
