Why do the tops of, say, /U/ swell but not the top of, say, /L/?
I don't quite get the top of /1/.
I rather like the illogical /Q/ counter!

Thank you Eliason.. top of /L/ is a mistake that needs to solve like you said cuz I design this with separately little shapes and sometimes leave open and finaly don't work like is awaiting..!!

I think /1/ need grow up the curve a little bit or the entire gliph, I'll test it.

and /Q/ counter, well.. I really think that's not need help to be readable and clearly diferent between it self and /O/ counter.. and so.. and I expect this font will come to make unique specially for this kind details.. haha.. may be some people not like.. may be and surely some peoples could love that detail.. I don't mind yet.. need some opinions else.

Thank you for notice me about that details and drop your advices.

Z,z lack weight in horizontals. Set words like "SIZE, prizes" and you'll see how much it stands out.

a little update on another gliphs.. and can see the special ligature called byme like "triple v" that represent "www" apostrophe, done for reduce visually space and leave clear the reference to some web link.

feel free for comment and critique.

I really like this font - and I think it works perfectly as a poster font. Could it be, that the small s has totally flat tops and bottoms?

You right Malte, it is actually flat.. but I still making changes on this font and I'll try specially now this "s" with curves, you've a good eye... hehe. ;) Thanks!

1st phrase "insight" below have curve example of "s" and 2nd the flat one... same for "S".
Here I done a test for compare the Flat and Curve "S" and "s"... Honestly I like the flat version, In fact, now I grow flats gliphs a little to compensate the visual weight between flats and curves shapes.
Thanks and regards!
