The combination of square counters and rectangular inktraps works really well.

Comment by four 4th march 2021

Thanks a lot, compañero! Perhaps the capital letters have been a little small compared to the highest glyphs of the lowercase, and sometimes I have thought about increasing their height a little. What do you think about that?

Comment by elmoyenique 4th march 2021

If you are going to increase the height of the upper case, I don't think they need much (maybe just a little nudge or two). I like it that the ascenders are slightly higher than the capitals. The overshoots are good too.

Comment by four 4th march 2021

Thanks a million, dear four. Our convergent thinking appears once again. I'm gonna try to raise the height of the uppercase a little bit and see what happens then with the readability of the font. Thank you again and keep safe you and yours (one year of Covid-19 just now! Aargh! Unthinkable!).

Beautiful atomic age design! Pure elmo magic, entirely resolved but with a jazzy hint of intaglio somewhere in there... ¹⁰/₁₀

I wonder if that little jog on the 1 could be carried through other perpendicular junctions, especially when enclosed such as with the G. Simplicity is a priority here, yet those solid square corners read a little heavy without ink traps.

@will.i.ૐ: Dear Master, you make me blush with your always kind and supportive words. Thank you very much once again. Honestly, I had thought of ink traps only to be used at angles <90 ° (like in the upper junction "1"), so those angles you were talking about - in the "G" and other glyphs - were left out of rank. But yours is an opinion to keep in mind, which I am going to try to use in a new version of the font that I am creating with your suggestions and those of four. I hope to improve the font with them. And I also hope like April rain a certain explanation about your brick patching (coughs) ... Be careful and stay safe, please.

@meek: Again I am very honoured and grateful for this pink distinction that helps us continue to put more effort into our task of creating new fonts in FontStruct. Thanks a lot.

Some very little retouchs added.

@meek: BTW, I can't add Categories to my FS. This is a part of the new features or is a bug?

...Or, maybe, it's my problem (as happened other times)... Sorry.

Comment by elmoyenique 5th march 2021

It’s a bug. Sorry! They’ll be back soon!
