Here is the lowercase of an idea I had this morning.

Go with it.

The “f” and “r” are too soft, the “g” too hard, the “x” needs more dance.

Very cool. I agree with hhp, and would add the “s” to the list. It needs some more of that poetry of odds you are playing with.

Excellent work. I really enjoy seeing type design that moves into the blacklettering category while still retaining the
useablity / legibility of contemporary letterforms. I tried this a while back with one of my own design, which was never completed. I think I will now have to pick it up where it was left off. Thanks for the inspiration.

Very impressive. Does the o need to be more angular and narrower for harmony with the rest?

Very nice!

This has a lot of potential.

Now the Capitals.

The “k” is not black letter at all, as well as the “f” and the top serifs of the ascenders. I like the texture, only the “s” stands out too much in it.
