Getting warmer?

Good day all,

I've been knocking up a custom type thingy for my mag while I'm on downtime at work. I was wondering if I could get people's opinions. I'm in many minds about the 'w' and I'm not entirely sure about the 'm' either.

Would love to hear what you think.

I like it, but only for large sizes. Based on the a, the counters will be too small to use below about 16 pt.
But back to your question about the w: The letters in this sample have details that are slightly off-balance, asymmetrical, but they all square up at the baseline. The w in example #3 is most simpatico with that style.

First things first: What's it about? Who's it for?
Shapes aren't just supposed to look pretty - they have work to do.

Good points, thanks.

It was going to be for a section head for the magazine I work for, (UK) Runner's World, and will be at least 16 point. To be honest, I was just bored and want to try and find any excuse to draw letters right now, so just started sketching, with the aims of something display size.

And thanks for responding, I appreciate it!
