This is my first type design, though this is probably the fifth version. It is necessary to precise that I haven't start the spacing job, I don't really know what to start with. I understand that a good spacing job will make the kerning job easier (a little), then how to do a good spacing. If the regular goes well, I planned to do the italics, small caps and at least three weights. Every feedback will be welcome.

Thanks from Montreal

sample

Looks like I had problems attaching my file. Here's a new try. Sorry

nice job, raphael!

my comments:
- the "a" looks too narrow;
- the "straight vertical" strokes on rounded
characters (bdpqo) seems a little disturbing;
- the uppercase and numbers are ok;
- the section is great.

can we see a text sample? (even without the
proper spacing, i think it is very helpful for
critique)

it really very nice

I agree with eduardo that the vertical strokes on the rounded charactes are disturbing, maybe you can make them shorter in order to extend the curve.

in the numerals 6 abd 9 I think that the eyes close to abrupt, maybe you can give them a more curvy way to close

in your @ I think the a is too big and too square.

the lc 2 is too heavy in the upper curve

in the UC 7 i think the diagonal is a little bit to the left.

anyway, these is a great font, i am anxious to see it working on a long text

This is pretty nice. Only the UC "F" seems off. And I would shorten the descenders a bit.

I like the numerals, and the "peculiars" too.

I love it, including the straight gothic sides.

same here, i'd keep the straight verticals.

overall i like it alot, very refreshing

looks great, and has good mentality.
i pro the straight vertical, they give the font some of his original touch. but you might want to soften the joint of the straight verticals with with the curves to avoid the bone effect (straight lines look like they are getting thinner in the middle).
