Hello typophiles, this is my first font created. You are encouraged to improve anything, and since this is an OTF, you can send me bettered (or created) glyphs to include. http://mywebpage.netscape.com/yeahnoah/ExiL-O.zip
First post and first face. Welcome! I'm afraid the page doesn't exist. Also if you link to a zip it would be usefgul to know what kind of file we can expect upon unzipping. Can you post a gif in your message perhaps? Attach a PDF maybe? Jon
It downloaded fine for me. It is an OTF. It might be better to upload PDFs instead of giving away your font Yeah.
Yeah, Thanks for the hint Chris. Got it now (different firewall at home vs. work...) Jon
Thank you for quick reactions. Netscape's Mywebpage section sometimes has difficulties, please try again later, it should work. There's a web page too at the same location. http://mywebpage.netscape.com/yeahnoah/index.html I'm planning to give away this font, just like my Type 1 font editor application, Noah(TM). I'd like to make a Type 1 version as well, but the number of kernpairs must be slightly reduced first.
The links aren't working for me, but anyway I -as well as many others I suspect- would like to avoid the hassle of unzipping, installing, etc. So if you could put up a PDF, or even just a [large] bitmap rendering that would be great. hhp
Your wish is my command. Here's a sample: <snipped> Due to bugs in post editor I'll include it in the next article.
the S is a bit top heavy, the B is too shy/narrow. the E too wide. i think generally the optical height isn't well adjusted yet. look at the word DESCENDER - the E letters appear to be heavier than the others. i like the lowercase better than the capitals. s is also a bit top heavy and leaning backwards. is "yeah" your real name? and welcome to typophile.
Here it is again:
Titus: Thank you. No, this is an alias. "Yeah" isn't a common name in Hungary, you know.
didn't know you where from hungary ... :-) on the pdf you can see it very clearly, that your S isn't high enough. it has to go below the baseline and above the x-height to appear optically correct.
Please note that what you see in PDF is actually the embedded font rendered by your OS font subsystem, subject to hinting. Zooming in will reveal those overshoots (which I had to decrease because S seemed too large compared to E).
