I'm new here and I'm also new to type design. Having said that, I've been drawing type since I was a child and eventually grew up a little and became a graphic designer along the way. My hobby is now taking a serious turn as it's about time I tried to share and even sell my typeface designs. My first attempt was a hand drawn, all caps, neoclassical serif face that I named 'Carrig'. Carrig being the Irish word for 'rock' (I'm based in Ireland) and the typeface itself was strongly influenced by classic letterforms carved into stone and weathered by time.
So, now I am developing Carrig into a full family and here, with the Roman weight, I have drawn a full set of lowercase characters to suit the style of their uppercase parents.
Before I release this to the world, I would absolutely love some considered criticism (or praise!) so that I may improve it. As I am a novice, I am a little bit wary of making "schoolboy errors" and any advice anyone here can give will be greatly appreciated. And... as this is my first post, I promise to become involved with the community – if you'll have me :)
