First type face
0

Hey everyone, I'm trying to design a variation of "Infinity". I wanted to create a typeface with the same flow as Infinity, but give the letters a square edge. This is my first typeface/post. Your help would be highly appreciated. Thank you for your time.

I'm no pro so take this advice for what it's worth.

The top of the /f/ seems awkward (perhaps move the stem rightward and extend the arm leftward (like in the /t/. The reversed /s/ for the /z/ also seems a little uncomfortable for me.

People are silent, because there's nothing much to say - you've taken an existing typeface and deformed it.
Plus, the typeface literally consists of one copypasted shape - no imagination.

It's a bit too modular/linear and not styled enough for my liking. The letters need to be individual and unified somehow. Here they seem to be using repeated parts in unharmonious arrangements. For instance the counters of /a/ seem wide next to the /b/ because it's a different shape and needs compensation as the counter isn't as tall.
