First font - need some critique

agemman's picture

Hello all!

I am currently working on my first font and its been a project of mine for the past week. I am a bit ashamed to say that I had no real plan except for the fact that I love sans-serif and grotesque typefaces. Personally I love it so far and the project has given me an excuse to learn Fontlab as well.

I am currently looking up kerning tutorials before I start with that, but I would love some critique on my glyphs. I want to make them as good as I possibly can. I am also appreciative for any tips, tutorial links, or recommended literature that I can read up on!

A PDF is attached for closer inspection!

Thanks in advance!

Good job!

You kept the overall feel intact throughout the whole font. My only issue is the lowercase g, it seems it isn't quite as refined in thin/thick stroke contrast as the rest of the typeface. I would give that another go.
Also, the diagonal stroke in your lowercase z seems a little too thin, it makes the z feel too light in comparison with the rest of the typeface.

I also recommend leaving it alone for a week, and when you return you'll notice alot of things on your own. Awesome job otherwise.
