my first font needs a harsh critique

Stigmaa's picture

New to design!
I have very little experience and only just started to act on my interest in typography.
This was mostly a dabbler's interest, until recently.
I submitted my first font, called Whale, to MyFonts. They promptly rejected it and basically said it was totally unprofessional. It's meant mainly for display, so I don't know why I bothered submitting to them in the first place, but I now have a stronger desire to make this font as good as it can be. Maybe even simplify it for use beyond just displays.
My feelings will not be hurt. I would greatly appreciate a serious critique of my design so that I can make the next version of Whale far better.
Thanks for your time.

also, ignore the graphic at the top of the PDF. I did not create it. I just made the file for personal use.

why you not try to create the modular typeface? to me this font not consistance. Create modul from this font is more easier.

B, C, D, E, G, L, O, Q, Z, a, b, c, d, e, g, o, q, u, 2, @. is was stencil font you cant mix that to another character.

You can more exploration, see others refernce, upload again in myfonts.
