A good clean, strong font. Perhaps the word spacing needs to be a bit wider or the j a bit narrower as, due to its kerning, the tail of the j overlaps the word space.

yeah very nice :)
what about cutting away one half of the "j" bow? and maybe lift the stroke of the "t"?

nice job

Thanks for the comments! Yes the "t" crossbar bothered me too. I raised it and the "f" crossbar to match. Also increased the word space slightly. I think it looks better. Thanks again!

Clean and solid shapes. I've never seen a "q" with a forward hook. It is admirable to experiment with new forms, but some of them may never work. The g,y are OK, but the q is not my type.

The "q" was exactly that, an experiment. It worked for me but it wasn't quite there with the others. I adjusted the tail with a more modern hook. Seems to "feel" better as part of the set.

It's a lot better now, and consistent with the rest of the set.

So do I change the "g" as well? Much as I'd hate to, I think it may look better with the continuity. Taking opinions.

No way! I say: keep the g as it is and consider using that inverted link on the y.

Keep the 'g' defo the most creative and distinctive glyph in the set.
You've done the clean solid version, next why not do a more experimental cloned version.

I would keep the g and use the same descender for the y too. But you don't have to change or discard anything you like. Keep them as alternative glyphs for the same letter. Or you can split the font and make two version of it.

And most of all, you don't have to do anything because someone else said so. Consider the good advice sufficiently and make your informed decision. It is untrammeled freedom that makes creative art so sweet.

The g is fine ... the whole set has a finished look to it. Now it gets my 10 :)

Thanks to everyone for your comments and suggestions. I think they all made for a better font with a clean, clear continuity.
