Hi, Tobias.

I like your typeface, but I'm not too sure about the lowercase f; I thought it was a t, at first... I notice now that you've done something similar with the descenders of g and y (is that the confusion you mention?)... Although the y looks like a y, the g *could* be confused with an a, I think...

You may want to try extending the f's ascender and the descenders of g and y... it doesn't have to be a lot -- try making a few different versions of the f, for example, with varying lengths of ascender, and let your eye decide which works best. (This is a method I learned from Briem's website, and it has been of great help to me.)

Best wishes!

hmmm... in the above post, when I said, "it doesn't have to be a lot", I meant to add "but it does have to be enough that the f is sufficiently different from the t"...

Allright, thanks Ricardo, I

That comment made me do some more, so after a break in sunny France, here it is!

Niiice.

In the lc the only things I might change are the beaks of "f" and "r": make the former's stronger, and try shearing both of them vertically.

In the UC, the "E" and "F" should be narrower, and the "L" seems too dark.

And in the numerals, the "8" isn't working.

I like the "&"!

Spacing: maybe a little tighter overall, and a hair more blank space.

Thanks, that must be some kind of record. I agree with what you are saying.. About the numerals, you dont think they should be lighter, considering they are narrower?

hrant's picture

What is this, a setup? :-)
It's hard to tell looking at converted-to-outline type, but yes, the numerals do seem a bit dark. In fact so do the caps, but only by a hair.

Got you...

Wow, extremely nice!

It has a strong feeling of hand made, pre digital to me. Love the blackness as well.

Keep going!
