just want a quick critique of the hand made typeface. Is it original? personalable? Its for an innovative new candle manufacturer. Rich
Rich, I really like it. I would suggest applying Brian's consideration about the "m" and "n" widths. I prefer the second "L" to the first one. Is this really "hand made" or do you mean homemade. It looks very computer generated, especially the curves
I like the look of the type, but I'm no face critic (at least compared to the other ugys (and gals) here!). I will says this, though -- everything about this seems VERY much like it belongs with Element Skateboards. This is the type of type (hehe) they ofen use in their apparel, ads, and logotype. Maybe this is no big deal, but wanted to make sure you knew of the association. http://elementskateboards.com/ Jeff
you should be commended for doing something from scratch. i'd second Scott's suggestion for your curves. You have curve-straight-curve thing happening + the skewed bowl shape makes the 'l' and 't' stand out as being too upright. Maybe the left side of the 't' crossbar could be reined in a bit. also, in context, the m feels a bit wide. the n + n usually needs to be narrowed. And the bottom of the 't' might need to dip a little lower to rest on a common optical baseline. I'm wondering, however, how this contemporary look fits in with a candle manufacturer. does the company have a website bj might be easier for others to critique a weebit smaller.
