First look of Spastha Sans

Typogruffer's picture

Hey guys,

Here is the first look of the typeface i am creating. Only caps done. No character spacing done and you can forget about kerning. Just wanted some feedback.
Issues:
The thickness of strokes of V, W, X, Y is to be increased.
S can do better with some more tweaking.
And the inner curves of characters like B, C, O, Q are not perfectly circular(for the lack of better term) and look jagged.( I have no idea how to change it).

Please inform me if you have any other issues...

Update: The problem of jagged text is more pronounced when using at pt size of 36. The other point sizes also give text which is not very smooth. Why?

Thanks
T

I like the "D" and "R", but most of the others are very wobbly.

Are you talking about the letters that have problems( 2nd PDF) or all letters including L, M etc. I didn't understand the term wobbly. How can L by wobbly?

Thanks

Sorry, I meant the ones with curves. The "L" is great.

@Typogruffer: You should post this on the Release board if you want more feedback:

Some advice that helped me get rid of some of my lumpy curves.

Cheers.
