If it's a scribble font, could it be not based on Helvetica? Since it's not meant to add to the Helvetica family, you're free to be more expressive and organic with the shapes.

thanks for the comments.

crossgrove - i'm impressed you've recognized the helvetica. actually, part of the idea was to take a printed type back full circle to a scribble stage. not good?

i'm a bit worried the vectors are becoming to complex when streamlining this. does anybody have any experience with this?

You can always simplify the vectors in FontLab (cmnd E), which will reduce the number of points with no great loss of quality (for a font like this).
