Easy Sans

I am new to type design and would appreciate some feedback on my latest efforts. This typeface is intended for body text and small sizes.

Looks like you have started off modifying Gill Sans and its influence is showing. But I am not very sure if the x-height, weight and counters are ideal for a text font in small sizes. Some letters espacially lowercase y looks out of place.

I see where a couple Gill Sans features popped into the design in the lowercase d and q (they are now a little different in my latest revision). This was not intentional, and I certainly was not modifying an existing outline. I tweaked the x-height and lowercase y as per your suggestions. Thank you very much for the feedback!

Attached is the latest revision.

For now, I will be adding glyphs and figuring out the whole kerning/metrics process. Any thoughts or suggestions would be welcome.
