Sprue

I'm working on this font for display and packaging with nothing going under 20 pts and no body text. As a newbie in font design I would really appreciate any comments or earned wisdom. Especially thoughts on the v,w, and x and on the 8 which is giving me grief.

thanks

Cool, it's like a synthetic hindu script.

I think this is promising, but it's gonna take a lot of effort to make it really sing.

Kathrin: Your font looks interesting, but it's difficult to tell what's going on at the size you posted. I see a number of inconsistencies, but perhaps they are intentional. Are you presenting alternate characters in "Sprue Regular"? My initial suggestions would be to a) do some caps, b) give the characters some air (they are way too tight), c) settle on a basic character set for "Regular", then expand from there.

Another thought would be to concentrate on the basic letter forms in "Sprue Less", then adapt it later to "Regular".

My first thoughts are that you are too scattered. Try to simplify your processes. It will take a lot of effort, but keep at it and you may be surprised at how fast it starts taking shape.

PS. I am especially fond of the lc "q".

Hi Kathrin. Nice work. Most of the transliteration type fonts I see, especially in the Indian flavor have hard lines. This is much softer, original and I like it a lot.
