This is my first time creating a serif. Any critique is welcome.
It looks like some of the widths could be evened out a bit. AEHLST look a bit narrow. Check your stroke widths too — the hairlines on F and K are quite different weights. The descender on J is quite weak. The spine of S could be more smooth and sloped.
Thank you Ben, for your feedback.
I have adressed the widths and altered the spine of the S, added some bulk to the tail of the J and made some changes to the weights of some diagonal strokes.
Just to add; the feeling I'm going for is more classic than contemporary.
New PDF is up with the following changes:
Again, any feedback is welcome.
The S and G feel unbalanced to me; the top terminals need to be moved slightly to the left. The top terminal of the C might benefit from a tiny leftward nudge, too. The A feels a bit narrow to me, but maybe others would disagree.
I like it!
One small comment: the top of the C and G look like they have a flattened region. Compare with the top of the O and Q which look nicely rounded.
Thanks! Yes you're right about the C & G, it may have been caused by the adjustments of the terminals I did, thank you for pointing it out.
Good work. To me the bowl of the R is too big, too similar to the P. It could be a bit smaller, between the B and the P. Also the stem of the U does'nt seems vertical and the curve could be a bit wider. Also, I think the A should be wider. Keep going.
Thanks for the feedback, André. I'll keep working on it.
G needs more refinement The upper serif isn't flowing nicely from the stem
should it be more like the S. But looking better and better
