Please crit, any comments welcome.

The overall look is very nice. The only glyph I doubt about, is the ‘y’ letter. I would suggest making both arms equally slanted because now the glyph looks a little skewed to the left.

By the way, though built by absolutely other means, the feel is close to Neo Sans

Andriy

Thanks for the comments, I think you are right about the ‘y’
There are similarities with Neo Sans, I started drawing this font about a year ago so hopefully its a matter of great minds thinking alike.
I had to change my server, so here is a link to the address.

This is great. My only comment would be that the family is a bit biased to the light end — any plans to add a black/extra bold weight?

Mmm… As for me, I still don’t like the ‘y’. Its left arm is so falling out of the general image :-(
Also it seems to me that the descender of ‘Q’ looks lighter than everything else in Light and Regular styles.
I like the weights very much. Overall opinion - great!
