A Didone, reduced and not historically accurate.
I started first with the light-version.

Some feedback would be great.

Thank you

I'm not a typeface designer, just a user, so take my comments for what they're worth. The first thing I noticed was the 'missing' serifs on the X. It looks wrong to me.

X/x has a "backwards" look because that kind of shape is more commonly found in the downstroke (relating to cursive form). The awkwardness would disappear if you applied it to both strokes. Something similar at the start of v/w/y may or may not be helpful.

Thank you both, it´s right, I will change the "backwards look"

Is it just me, or are the E and F too narrow?

Tail of /Q/ and hood of /f/ are too timid.
The stencil-like breaking at the branching points is probably one too many ideas for this typeface. If you're going to keep that, better to make the break at the bottom than the top of /p/.

@eliason,

thank you for your corrections.
I think you are right with Q and, f and the breaking point could be better at the bottom of the p. Maybe it is one idea too much, maybe not, I´m not sure …

Just a quick thing for now: awesome to see an ascending "3"!

Serious? For example Didot has an ascending 3 ...

It's an old French tradition that is as rational as it is now rare. Also ascend the "2" though.
