Golden Ratio Serif

A Serif typeface I've been developing based on the golden ratio, I've drawn inspiration from Didot and looked at modernising some of the serifs. Some of the characters still need some work but I think it's on its way. love to hear thoughts, suggestions

Looks good!

The 't' looks off, I think the ascender is to high, but maybe that's intentional. Also, the 'z' does not quite fit in my eye, maybe it's too geometric?

I think it looks pretty good!

Just to comment on a couple of things:
1) I find the serif on the 'leg' of the a disturbing (it is quite different from the rest of the serifs...?)
2) I agree with Marco that the z doesn't fit properly looks too 'square' compared to the rest of the characters.

But overall a good job!

The underbite of the e is a little distracting.

If you're into Phi, then you should check out Huntley's book http://The divine proportion. Really hardcore stuff.

What Kevin (cerulean) said; plus, I think the left leg of the ‘x' will need adjusting a bit (up and/or left) to counteract that optical illusion making it look offset (low) relative to the right arm.

‘k' is quite Walbaumy.
