The 3-d effect is quite compatible with your octagonal style. These 45° angles align perfectly with your choice of extrusion effect; with this in mind, check characters K, k, M, W, X, x, Y, y, Z – and all others with non-45° angles – for consistency. They are breaking the perspective a bit, as the extrusion should always align at 45°, regardless of the character shape. For instance, the Z should have a bit of shadow on the right side of its diagonal, but this is chopped off by the non-45° extrusion up top.
I also propose i and j will improve by matching their upper ‘serifs’ to the size of the i’s lower ‘serifs.’ All the same, very nice first go at the style!
Clean as ever...which has the unfortunate effect of making it seem effortless...when in reality, only a master crafter such as yourself can design it so well that the design itself becomes transparent. Excellent.
@Will: You're absolutely correct about the shadow to the right of each non-45 degree angled line. I struggled with this feature before releasing the font, but I decided to omit these shadows; however, your comment caused me to take another look and make the revisions you suggested.
As for the upper serifs of i and j, I tried extending them, but I was unhappy with the way they looked. So I'm going to leave them alone.
Your insightful remarks are always welcome!
@thalamic: Praise from you always makes me smile, Ata! But I'm certainly not a master crafter, as Will's constructive criticism points out. Cheers!
Clean, well crafted - it's already been said. Such a delightful foray into the world of 3D. Well deserving of my humble 10/10
@p2pnut: Thanks for your lovely vote of confidence, Ray! It's always a pleasure to hear from you. :)
Several glyphs were revised today to correct errors in perspective.
More revisions were made today to enhance perspective.
Your favorite letter shapes with some added depth. Neat and consistent design with no surprises. The large character set is admirable. 10/10
@Frodo7: Thank you very much for your favorable review. By the way, I hope that “no surprises" is a good thing! :)
@fontcollector: Design with no surprises is not good or bad. It depends on what you prefer. Some people value the classic shapes and proportions. Others look for radical change. One could make great fonts by following the best traditions or by breaking every rule.
Thank you very much Fontcollector
For your nice comment!
I must say.. it is a big heroic fairytale horse.. like the Belgian horse Beiaard. It was hard to construct a little horse.. but maybe one time I succeed..
Packed with dynamic tension, Uptake is an exciting and characterful but also eminently usable sans.
