Honda released the Urban EV concept car at the 2018 Frankfurt auto show and used a modular typeface on a screen on the outside of the car. It reminded me of a typeface I designed on Fontstruct a number of years ago, Micro 205, but with two different sized dots instead of squares. SbB Drivetrain 209 is inspired by the Honda design, but beyond a couple of design cues, it's a completely different design.

    My sample of SbB Drivetrain 209.

    I really like the lower case letters. They have a smooth, comfortable feel to them. I am having trouble with the capital Q and somewhat the J and the K. They seem to break the smooth feel of the rest of the font.

    I made a couple of adjustments. The J was too wide and I tweaked the Q...

    @Sketchbook B - You may have already considered this, but could the start of the second hump of the m benefit from starting one dot lower like the h, n, r, etc.?  On your wonderful sample above, the left side of the m looks somewhat squished, and almost flat across the top.  Having the right side mirror the same starting point might alleviate that.  Otherwise, outstanding.  :^)

    @goatmeal You are exactly right. I adjusted the m and it definitely looks better.
