Critique for first sans

saman's picture

<font class="dontLookLikeCrap">Hello!

I am currently finishing the lc glyphs of my first typeface, an - yet to be named - sans serif font.

Before advancing too much I would appreciate some comments on this preview:

I know there is still a lot of work to be done - especially with the e, r and s.

How do you like the feel of it? does it feel too light for a regular?

I would be grateful for some feedback - no need to be gentle! :-)</font>

hmm...I'll try again:

here would be a preview of the face so far.
letters that certainly need working (as far as I can see) are:
r (too shy?)
s (spine too clumsy?)
t (ascender too dodgy?)

please add/review this list.

thanks for your feedback!

saman's picture comments at all?

The 'g' needs work. It's too big and the bottom story is too far from the top story.

The 'e' feels off balance. It looks like it

It needs polishing but overall I think it's ok. You have good basic shapes, but need to polish the details, like the round terminals on the ascenders.

I have made a study regarding the top part of the ascender. I would appreciate some feedback:

I like the 3rd/middle one.

Hi, Samann.

Once again, I agree with Hrant -- the 3rd h is the one I like best, followed by the 4th one.

As for your earlier questions... I like your typeface. It has a certain elegance. But yes, I feel that the s needs some work. And I agree with DeWitt's comments about the e and the g.

I look forward to seeing more of your work!
