Your first stencil font is a very strong "first", apparently. I very much like the E,F,S and A,V,W, as they set the tone for the whole set. 10/10

yes this is very sweet. very classic. reminds of type that could appear on WPA posters. yet very original and well executed. the numbers are very nice. although a full set would be great, i would rather recommend you consider holding back and eventually start selling the full set. just an idea, but this is good stuff.

I also like the strength and personality of this stencil. Just a question : are the little triangular hole in the upper right of C and G wanted or is it a default ? I think that if it was wanted it should be a bit more pronounced.
About the T, I think personally I would have prefered a more fattened upper bar.
But it is definitely an impressive design.

Thanks for the comments. I struggled with this one - the relatively small grid-size meant a fair bit of problem solving was required to get the letters looking consistent. But I guess that's what you get for being a stickler and not wanting to emulate curves.

The notches in the G and C are intentional - they're not ideal I know but they're either too subtle or too pronounced and I preferred the subtle version. Although, I may rethink that aspect entirely. The T was a nightmare from start to finish - this is the best of a bad bunch I'm afraid.

I've no idea if I'll even attempt the lowercase - the constraints may be too severe. We'll see; first though I'll maybe tidy up some of the uppercase characters.

A clean, strong design with some really nice touches 10/10

A few more glyphs added. A few of the originals have also been tweaked slightly, thanks largely to the new Composite function - an excellent addition.

Now all we need is a native kerning pairs facility.

Great font with lots of subtleties. I'm wanting it to get top picked. I like the G and C choices you've made -- it's a display font anyway, so those subtleties come into play nicely .
