This was several weeks in the making and overall I feel like it turned out pretty well. Some characters look a bit heavier than others, but the nature of a small grid didn't give me many options.
FYI for all the faux-bezier haters, all the curves were created using curved bricks.
The lowercase is 5 bricks high and the upper is 7 bricks.
Whew! Great work! I love the way this font flows and how the letters are formed. Well worth the effort and very usable. You might want to check the spacing, however, on the upper and lower case V, W, and X. They seem to kind of run into each other when typing. Either way though, awesome! 10/10
Well done very nice work.. s and w are awsome.
I can imagine all those complex composite :) 10
Good work! I like specialy the "&" sample. (Perhaps some glyphs deserve a little more attention in the design, IMHO; b.e.: the 6,8,9 or @, but this is your font, not mine).
Congratulations! FontStruct Staff have deemed your FontStruction worthy of special mention. “Evity” is now a Top Pick.
Thank you to all of you. I tried to get too cute with the kerning on the V, W, and X. I've modified those as well as f, r, t, v, and w to hopefully work better.
I also changed the 8. It looks top-heavy to me, but I suppose it is better than what I had.
I will have to think some more about the 6, 9, and @.
@meek Thank you for the Top Pick!
What's the wwVA?
@ianleeye I don't understand your question. Can you elaborate?
@ianleeye: I think you're wondering about the wwVA in the glyphs? It's just a few alternatives for the letters w, V, and A. Am I correct, aphoria?
Anyway, this font is gorgeous. Well-deserved TP. 10/10
Ahhh...sorry. Duh on my part.
Yes, those are just a few alternates that I tried. They don't show in the previewer at the default size and I forgot they were there.
@xenophilius Thanks for the comment and vote!
Well, aphoria, I said the two small w's capital V and capital A! The more latin case HAS IT!
You're right, xenophilius.
now THAT is a nice font!
Just one issue: kerning. Especially lower case "f". Any updates about it?
@Alessandro Petta Thank you! I know the kerning isn't great, but there isn't much I can do because it is such a small grid size.
Now I see, I didn't realize that at first. Still a great typeface at my eyes!
Hey aphoria, would it be too much of a trouble for you to add the "ä" and "ö" (both lower- and uppercase)?
It would be really appreciated!
P.S. I cannot stop appreciating this font of yours :)
@Alessandro Petta Per your request...
Thanks for the compliments!
Wow aphoria, thanks for the quick reply! Would I ask too much for the uppercase too?
Your wish is granted. :)
Wow! Very nice sans serif. Reminiscent of Gill Sans. Simply beautiful. I would change the @, though. The @ should be an a in the middle, not a dot in the middle, although that might be hard considering the grid you're using.
@winty5 Thank you for the compliment.
As for the @, I don't think it has to be an "a" inside the loop...there is room for interpretation. :)
And any way, you're right about the grid-size in this case...it really wouldn't allow much else for the @.
Packed with dynamic tension, Uptake is an exciting and characterful but also eminently usable sans.
