My first proper attempt, need wisdom!

This is really more a «learning Fontlab»-project than a serious typeface attempt. I didn't have any clear idea or sketches before i started, i just sat down and started drawing beziers.

As you can see, there's no metrics or kerning to speak of yet, and the hinting is horrible, frankly because i don't know how to do that stuff yet! First of all i wanted to get some feedback on the character widths and the general design of letters. Are there any letters horribly out of sync with the rest, that are too skinny/thick, etc.

If you have anything else to add, go ahead! Any and all insights will help!

Ooh, also, would it be correct to label this a neo-grotesk? That's just my uneducated guess. :)
