In this logo I use Bodoni Poster Italic font.
However, I don't have much experience working with classic linked typefaces.
1. I've changed a bit the default kerning so it feels homogeneous and works as logotype.
Does the rhythm of letters looks correct? (http://klim.co.il/misc/logo_01.jpg)
2. It is TTF font, so it doesn't complete the links between letters.
So I built them manually. Are they correct? (http://klim.co.il/misc/logo_01.jpg)
3. The opened link of "m" looked unnecessary, so I decided to cut it.
It became a little limping, so I compensated it by pulling the stem a bit lower.
I also fixed the kerning between "m" and "&". (http://klim.co.il/misc/logo_02.jpg)
I've tried to decide what correct angle the cut should be according
I'm working on a legacy mark to commemorate the 25th anniversary for a St. Louis arts organization. Out of several options, here's the direction my client picked. It's loosely based on Bodoni and Benton Modern.
If anyone could offer some input on how to improve the curves, I'd really appreciate it. Some areas don't feel quite right yet, particularly in the way the swashes above and below cradle the shapes of the numbers.
Feedback much appreciated.
Just a heads up, I'm running a font contest over at my blog. This weekend I'll be giving away 5 complete sets of my Jeanne Moderno fonts.

I would like to get some professional feedback. I've started drawing a didone-like
alphabet, taking Bodoni, Didot and a few similar font - and using my imagination and eye at least.
First of all this is meant to be a self-training project - and I like well-crafted Didone-s too so try to achieve something like that :)
It is a very early stage - the very basic letterforms are still tweaked here and there, but I like its slightly condensed look. Small caps and text figures are added using some automated effects and hand-tweaking the results of these.
I've tried to letterspace only the lowercase so far but the first result was a too tight look when text set and way too far wordspaces. First print test showed it too clearly.
