An exercise in using the newer bricks to create a single typeface with two weights.

Very good! And, while the bold uppercase/regular lowercase is clever, maybe they deserve a font each.
Also, you could try to make some characters such F and E a little narrower.

Agreed. Also I think the tail for Q can be slightly longer.

Thank you both.

It's unlikely that I'll split these into two typefaces as there are too many letters I'm not very happy with - the E and F being two prime examples. And because of their construction, there's no way that I can think of to reduce their width by a sufficiently subtle amount. Their current shapes are a sacrifice of letter-width in favour of line-width, as the image below should hopefully illustrate.

The thinner K construction should give an idea as to how awkward some of the shapes were to build - deceptively difficult in places. And the bold S is one letter that will never maintain the smoothness of the other forms.

Love the new Q!
My tribute to this.

I would suggest you to try making a typeface similar to Bank Gothic.
