Hello, beate. :-)
Amazing work. Diagonals are a bit thick — maybe on purpose? Anyway, easy 10/10.
Remarkable display font! But I think glyphs containing diagonals need ink traps too, like Q,Z,7,comma,#.
Very awesome. 10/10+fav
Congratulations! FontStruct Staff have deemed your FontStruction worthy of special mention. “Baby Elephant” is now a Top Pick.
'Heavy and bold' ... and successful :) 10/10
Congrats for the TP, pal!
BTW, I think that few of your glyphs they have a little bit of "overweight" (please, don't worry: I'm just only talking about the "A", "M", "N", "V" or "W"...).
Excellent work reminiscent of beate's. Agree with architaraz that the beautiful inktraps could be applied to more glyphs. 10/10
Actually, at first my characters were a bit offended that someone called them obese, but when I told them it was all for the greater good to loose some weight they all agreed.
Thanks for the great comments and the TP.
Sometimes I use this tool: make darkest the glyphs to see one of them strangely more darker than others... It's like to take their weight with the eyes. It isn't scientific, but it works (at least to me). Here I send you an example of this.
...And I beg your pardon, I don't want to offend any of your nice characters, of course. They are all in the weight, of course, I know. :)
(Delete one "of course", please.)
love that baby
Great font! I wish I was as skinny as that baby elephant!
Good work. Maybe include a non-inktrapped variant on the lowercase?
Packed with dynamic tension, Uptake is an exciting and characterful but also eminently usable sans.
