This is great. The cross stroke on the t looks too high though. Maybe the whole top of the t could be lowered a little bit.
Thanks! I've lowered the top of the t. Any more suggestions?
Thicken up the stem of your T. Otherwise, nice fat octagonal fontstruction – and bonus points for extending the character set. :)
Thanks, Willy! ;-)
A few things to consider: the middle horizontal stroke of E,F is disproportionately large, as a consequence your Æ looks a bit queer; the inverted exclamation mark and question mark (¡¿) go down to the descenders; the section sign (§) also stretches to the descender territory; so does the pilcrow sign (¶); the single and double angle quotation marks (‹› «») are huge, do not confuse them with less-than and greater-than signs (); the eszett (ß) has no descender in Roman fonts as opposed to cursive forms. Your glyph looks more like the Greek small beta (β); the small thorn (þ) has ascender and descender too. The colon and semicolon (:;) usually occupy the whole x-height, yours moved three bricks upward. If you want to learn more about these issues, there are excellent books to thumb through (e.g. Designing Type by Karen Cheng; The Elements of Typographic Style by Robert Bringhurst).
@Frodo: Whew, lotsa stuff. I don't recall §, ¶, and þ having descenders. Thanks, though. :)
There is no need to recall, just take a closer look at your own comment.
Ohhh. Haha. I misunderstood. I'm about to change 'em.
Now I haven't studied Spanish or Portuguese, but about the ¡ and ¿ I bellieve that the ascending versions are a "legal" alternative. And prefered in all caps environments. But I don't know if there is a seperate unicode point for those.
Well, the most common way to do it is the one you suggest Frodo7.
@CMunk: I think, you referred to an OpenType feature called "case sensitive punctuation". This topic has been extensively discussed on Typophile.com and elsewhere.
Yes, that's excactly it. I thought it might be opentype. Thank you for the resources ;)
Unusual and fun, Basmachi is a high-contrast, modular script with a Central-Asian flavour.
