Description:
I though that the new bricks were perfect to imitate the logo of The Guardian. Then, this is what I came up with ;-) Down for some time for major corrections, thanks to everyone commenting, I appretiate your input.

Solid! I like it. My only problem: those new bricks make the font have very extreme stroke contrast, which is fine, but then the (semi) serifs should reflect that and not be so thick. 10/10

Nice :) With subtle inktraps! 10/10! Although it seems disrupted somehow in "uvw", and the width of x could be reduced a bit ;)

Love it. Definitely some "traditional" contrast inconsistencies, but they're fairly evenly distributed so that the overall personality/color works quite nicely. Inspiring stuff.

This is PRO stuff, and we amateurs should fave this :) I won't be surprised if it'll be a featured fontstruction, people need to see this.
10/10!

Wow! Thanks, architaraz.

To be honest, I'm not at all satisfied with quite a lot of details in the typeface. It started out as a imitation of the Guardian titel typeface. When I published it, I saw its flaws and demonics, Umbreon126 and fugitiveglue pointed out some of them aptly. I took it down again to rework and now I published it again. I'm now more satisfied, it reminds me a lot of Ohm Run Slab, although its aim is something else altogether. Still, there's something about this font that still needs improvement, I hope I can get to that some day.

As a suggestion for the inktraps in e.g. the p, I'm also posting a screenshot. It's really a nice thing to have those new bricks, although they might not be apparent in this fontstruction at first sight.

Very nice ... and what a level of complexity you go to with those composites! A definite 10/10

Just one thing though - it isn't at all like The Gnauriad ... all the sample text was spelled correctly :-)
