So I finally released Miranda Pro, an updated OpenType take on one of my first types, a classic serif display face.
Here's a sample:

Neat. Too bad that the specimen doesn't render it justice.
Blue values anyone?
Yes, there are definitely some overshoot hinting problems in the sample.
I'm also bummed that he's used the name "Miranda," as I would have loved to be able to use it myself. It's my older daughter's name.
Nice typeface, though!
Thanks for the feedback, folks. Hinting is definitely one of my weakest areas in font development. Any suggestions where I should go to learn how to do it right/better? I'd love to learn and improve what I do.

Miranda is a nice name, but you cannot register a trademark for common names. Maybe that is why Dennis Pasternak chose Maiandra.
