hi, this is my font i've developed. let me know if it sucks and what i need to change, k? Thanks, i'd appreciate the feedback.
i realized i uploaded it incorrectly, i'll fix it
here it is, hope it works, you can officially call me a 'dingbat' now.... ;)
Fresh take on the stencil. It might be fun to make your white space (the breaks) in the characters a little thicker--just to see how much the letter can handle it--make it more stencil-like. Reminds me of Margo Chase's work a little.
Kari, Your design does not "suck". If you can, please set some text with it. I think some characters are too similar to each other to be legible. I like the numbers best of all. -smc
Sean, i agree that some letters look similar...have any ideas for my U or V? I know they seem alike, but since I basically cut and pasted all the characters from a few parts, I was wondering if I should take a new stand on them. I had a lot of troubles with the B and the D, trying to incorporate the same stem weight and bottom look-a-like serif with the break in it. Any ideas? thanks for the feedback. I enjoy my numbers too!
[ I just sneezed and accidentally deleted my message. I'll try writing it again.] ...since I basically cut and pasted all the characters from a few parts... This could be your issue. I would suggest taking what you currently have, printing it out on paper and tracing over the letters - to see what kind of solutions you come up with regarding what you see and know as problem areas. The "R" is really good. This character is unique among the others. Perhaps this idea could be used on the "N", "H", "A". The "T" and to a lesser extent the "i" are also unique in that they seem to be the only glyphs to have what could be conventional serifs. Maybe these characters should change or perhaps their characteristics should be exploited elsewhere. The more I look at it the more I like it however, keep working on it. -smc
sean, been busy lately, sorry for responding so late, thanks for the advice, i'll try to incorporate some of your ideas into my font, if i can. I actually thought my R stood out from the rest and didn't look uniform with the others. I like your idea of incorporating the same concept with other characters, so i'll and give it a shot! Thanks
