Based on some drawings I did a while back. I'll hopefully be adding new characters all the time to make a more comprehensive font. Any feedback will be greatly received, especially on the lower case 'k', 'x' and 'z'.

I like the general idea, and I'm waiting for the rest of the glyphs. BTW, you must increase the space between words, IMHO.

A great start - looking forward to seeing more.
Comment by p2pnut 25th August 2014
Thanks for your input guys :) I'll try adding more glyphs soon.
Comment by Tom CB 25th August 2014
I think that the descender on the z might fit better into the font if it were as long and with the 'serif' kind of tail as the y.
The distance between j and the preceeding letter (when in a word) looks too large, try moving the j more to the blue line on the left.
Comment by Aeolien 25th August 2014
Very nice. :) I agree about the j: you can negative-space characters by the way; i.e., in the case of j, you can have the stem flush with the left marker. The same applies to the t: you can set the spacing after the bar t better balance the negative space between characters.

Great start and looking forward to more glyphs. I agree with the feedback and would also suggest to sit t on the baseline.

A really great start, but for me, there are a number of inconsistencies. Although sometimes breaking your own rules can be part of creating the right look.
Here are my suggestions:-
The 'f' has three possibilities. The best one will shine through, when you do some trial tests.
i & j. I would lower the dots slightly, It looks less regimented then, and is usually the norm on most fonts. I would also flip the top half of the 'j' horizontally. It is more consistence with the rest of your design then. The tops of i and j are usually the same,
'k' - flip the right side top and bottom horizontally, otherwise this simply doesn't work.
't' - I would lower the stem, otherwise it looks a little tall.
'u' - although this technically breaks a rule, it should be somewhat similar to the 'w', so I would flip the top of the right vertical horizontally.
'x' - again breaks a rule, but 'x' always does. Needs totally flipping outward just like the right side of the 'k'.
'y' - the top of the 'y' should be consistent with 'u' and first half of 'w' (sometimes), so this needs flipping horizontally as well.
You've also bridged/connected a,c,e,m,n,o,u,v,w. I would suggest you might want to think about bridging the rest, as 'h' and 'n' should be very similar.
I personally would join them for better readability, and possibly add the little serif that you have done on the 'a', to the b,d,g,m,n,p,q,r and u.

Wait, wouldn't the x then have the same issue as the j (inconsistency of the tops of the letters)?
Comment by minidonut 23rd October 2014
Yes, but as I said above "'x' - again breaks a rule, but 'x' always does."
