Hi (from an amateur typographer, but take it as you wish).
So here it goes.
Your font has a nice horizontal flowing feeling to it yet you should improve one or two things:
- The lower stem+belly connection on the "b" and "d" should get fixed, as in a simplified curve from the base to the stem instead of a complex stem to curve intersection (specially the "b"). It would prevent it to be a "brake" in the horizontal flow of the line. On the other hand your font will get "rounder"...
- The other thing is the horizontal bar on the "a", the "e" and specially the "3". There are to many curves. It gives your characters a blurry look. Probaly if you eliminate the top or the bottom curve joint of the inner intersection it'll lighten up without loosing the design.
I think you can develop a very nice font if you keep it up. I specially like the "z".
Keep it up!
By the way,
thanks alot for your nice detailed feedback. WIP means work in progress..
Thierry, Just in case you have never seen it before.: About a year ago, Ive designed a rather similar ( Well, 'a' + 'e' may be :) typeface, named 'formlos PlayR'.:> http://www.formlos.net/formlosTF/PlayR
i have seen it yesterday, because someone linked it at another forum: http://www.spotleid.de/forum/stiftung-wahntest/26658.html
but not before.. hope you dont think i ripped you or anything.. playR looks great.
