Very nice one, with a “propaganda poster” feel.
A good first font - well worth a bit of tweakage :) The diagonal of the '7' could do with being a bit thicker. 10/10
Thanks for the comments and generous marks riccard0 and p2pnut. Very encouraging words and from two prolific and accomplished Fontstructors. Keep up your excellent work, your inspirational to us noobs. I noticed the slim '7' p2pnut, thanks. I've tweaked it and a few other things, have a look and leave any more comments. Don't know if I'm brave enough to try lower case yet (need to master composite blocks first since the Cap size is 8 blocks high by about 7 wide). For now I've copied upper case to lower case, so no matter what case you type it should appear OK (latin only, of course). p2pnut you're a 1 person font foundry. How do you find the time? Considered using pro software and going pro?
I've managed to squeeze in a lower case set. Slight trouble with the 'e' and 's', but generally I'm fairly happy with it.
Just done a bit more tweaking. Promise to leave it alone for a little while now and let the dust settle.
A sample of how it could look on a poster (outlines and depth added in Illustrator).
Very nice lowercase! Isn’t "u" too narrow? (I would expect it to be wide as "n")
Thanks, and well spotted. Just fixed it. I must have lost concentration.
The samples show the design to good effect. It looks better all the time ... I still go back and 'tweak' some of my old designs occasionally - perfection may be impossible, but it's a worthwhile ambition.
Great job at a first font. Some letters look a bit too wide (D, H, K, V, y) but other than that it works well. Very nice sample images too.
Thanks for the comments, greatly appreciated. Every time I look at the font I want to tweak it. Some of the letters you mentioned Yautja I agree need adjusting. A small grid makes changing the width of characters with diagonals tricky (ending on a half brick affects letter spacing greatly). But, I will try.
F could be a bit wider, I think.
Yautja, I narrowed those letters (you were right I think) and changed the "y" to match the shapes of some other letters more. Thanks for your opinion, it helped.
Hi riccard0. Thanks for taking the time to help me improve the font. I think the "F" is OK, are you looking at the "f" in the sample image, ("this font represents" and "exercise in frustration")?
Ops, yes, I looked at “frustration” and saw “Frustration”. Sorry.
Great first font! I think the letter "y" could be made blocky or squared.
Thanks cablecomputer. If you're referring to the "y" in the text sample image I uploaded, I agree. I've since squared it so it is now based more on the "g" and fits the style and shape of the rest of the font much better.
Hi DrowsyFonts, I used your typeface on this poster (bit of a redesign of an old one I did as a student project). Your letter shapes were just the thing! (show was an interactive theatre show where audience follow video game characters around and have adventures).
Unusual and fun, Basmachi is a high-contrast, modular script with a Central-Asian flavour.
