ataxia: new font from justi
0

Good evening!
I am pleased to announce my new font, called Ataxia. I would like to hear opinions about the project!

Ataxia was designed to be used in long texts such as books and magazines.
The font has the weights regular, bold, italic and bold italic as well as ligatures, small caps, oldstyle numbers and support for many languages, with more than 500 glyphs.

maybe you should merge all contours - have a look to your last picture. Eth, Lslash, Tbar, tbar

Make sure to "set PS direction" before merging.

There are several problems with the accents.
Check out the Diacritics web site to get them right.

I like your xyz, justi. Smooth and inviting, like ice cream.

This face is fucking great. :)

It would be nice to see it expanded into more weights and get some discretionary ligatures in there.

I love the italics, too. Very quirky, but fit well with the overall aesthetic. Great work.

Looks very good in small sizes, so for sure deserves some polishing.

Daniel, as I already said in Critique section, Ataxia is a beautiful and very clear font. I like it and think you will have a great product after these corrections. I also loved you rainy photos (taken in Sampa, I suppose).
