Basa Nova

I have never draw in fontlab alone before, most of the time I draw the glyphs in Illustrator piece by piece merging each objects and pasting it inside fontlab prior to tweaking. This is my first try to draw every glyphs in fontlab so please bear with me =)

I'll name it Basa Nova for the meantime until I can think of something better. Basa means "read" in my native language and because it was intended to be a text face which readability is important, I decided to name it this way.

I'm not sure if some of the letterforms do make sense at all but I kinda like it subtlety when it is set into a running texts, though I might be wrong too.

Only lowercase letters for now and currently designing the uppercase as of this writing. Do you think it is worth pushing for?
