B A L A N C E - a stand alone typeface.

Hi there,

I’ve been designing a font for the 3D environment, where each letterform is able to stand alone, up right in the 3D; even the lowercase letters, numbers, question marks etc.

It's largely inspired by engineering and building rather than traditional font concepts
(i.e. Readability, onscreen adaptability etc.) BUT I have not used massive slab serifs or made overly angular/sharp corners.

I'd love to know what you guys think of it. As I'm more of a typographer than a type designer. . .

any feedback / help would be great. . . cheers.

I know it's not a useful criticism but perhaps consider a name change? There is already a typeface named Balance!

The "r" seems a little suffering.
maybe you could add a little notch to the left in order to counter-balance a more developed right side.

Not exactly the same, but it might be worth looking at the
work of Andrew Byrom: http://andrewbyrom.com/type.html

I'm not a type pro, but the question mark looks off to me, especially the negative space. Like a Picasso nose/face.

Totally different too, but I had thought of this Cube font: LINK

Thanks everyone for your advice. . . I think I'll make the changes suggested BUT I think this font is ready for the metaphorical shelf. . . at least for now.

Thanks again. cian.
