Hi I'm new here. This is my first attempt at useable typeface design. Tenitively named MJ, I based the font on a handwriting style I developed. I didn't want to design a handwriting font but a unique whimisical serif font. It has some charicertistics that I wanted to carry over from my handwriting, h, k, f with decenders, the initial and terminating curve I sometimes use. The font uses a grid for the structure of the letters but I wasn't hesitant to break it when I needed to. I haven't drawn the UC yet.
Please let me know what you think and what can be improved! any suggustions on the z?
