A blocky sans serif. Not sure about the overshoots, they seemed a bit excessive in capitals (due to the larger flat edges) so I only kept them in the lowercase.

Nice and cool! I like it! 10/10 (Btw, I have a font called zyntagma too, but basically different).

Another solid and highly functional font with that typical yautja flavour.

The one small thing I'd like to point out is that diagonal stroke weight for most characters feels a tad bit heavy sided compared to the vertical stroke weight.

But nonetheless great work as usual my friend.

Thanks, friends.

@Sed4tives the stroke weights look okay to me, maybe it's just the quality of the FS preview? (At smaller sizes it looks pretty messy.) I'd like to hear more opinions on this.

Very nice contrast between horizontal and vertical. One of my fonts uses a similar contrast in its letters.

I wonder if making the curved areas larger on the D would make it look better?

I also wonder if making the numberals a bit narrower would help distingush the digit 0 from the capital O?

Sorry for the sheer size of the content, its quite a lot I know, but I couldn't simplify it more efficiently.. my apologies on this again. I'm pretty sure you know the majority of this quite well, but this shed some light the reasons for my previous judgement. I hope it clarifies it better this way. And again, regardless wether with or without these adjustments the font is a rock solid achievement that is super usable with tons of professional qualities.

Cheers

Thanks for taking the time to explain, I see what you mean now. I guess my brain is too focused on consistency and "mathematical perfection" that these optical corrections are still something I'll need to work on (and also the reason why I like FontStruct's grid-based approach so much).

@BWM Thanks. I'd rather not use faux curves on the D... Making numerals narrower could work but I've never really liked that idea (see previous paragraph).

@Sed4tives: Constructive and useful explanation. Btw, I didn't know the technique of adding blur. I usually do it squinting, but this is better.
