A cuddly fat font

kosal's picture

Care to critique these lowercase forms? Still working on the /y/, but I'd like some input on the rhythm so far and how it can be improved. Not too happy with that /s/, though. I just saw Sudtipo's newly released Fiancé which has the same soft-ness I'm going for. It has what I call a baby s...maybe I'll take cues from that.

I like it a lot. It's very friendly. I especially like the g and the w.

The s looks light in the middle. I hate trying to do 's's in fat fonts, but I think it's better to take bulk off of the terminals, rather than the middle.

You have some general x-height correction to do. When I look really closely, even the x and z don't seem to match, and look at 'ese.'

The upper right arm of the x looks thinner than the others. It's not that noticeable, but the crossing of it could use some optical correction too.

That's all I can see right now :)

I think you could just shorten the negative spaces of 's', so as to thicken the verticals and relax the slope of the center.

Reminds me a lot of Omnes black

beautiful. reminds me of teaspoon, and I mean that in a good way. Love the contrast of the roundness with the sharp inside angles.

If you want it still cuddlier you could try a curvier treatment of the rightmost strokes of /v/ and /w/. And maybe leg of /k/?

That's looking lovely. I agree witgh eliason, that you might experiment a bit more with the v, w and k, to bring that curvy character into them. I also think the s can use some work, and the z could use a bit more conrast between the horizontals and the diagonal. Perhaps the hook of the f could use a slightly more pointy terminal? I.e. like the bottom of the j, but not as much.

My 2 cents:
a, c, e, f, g, j, r, s & t have a very nice personality.
b, d, h, i, k, l, m, n, o, p, q, u, v, w, x & z seems too generic.
