New to Typophile? Accounts are free, and easy to set up.
I've been working on and off on this typeface for the last few months. While I did start creating one a few years ago, I'd consider this my first "real" attempt at a full font. While a lot of the details are more suited to display purposes, I'm also trying to make it work at smaller sizes (maybe a separate text version?).
I haven't really shown it to many people yet and I'd like to know what you think and if it's worth continuing with. I'm mainly concerned about it looking too amateur-ish and wanted to know if there are any glaring beginner mistakes/things I've missed.
I've drawn the upper and lowercase, some very basic punctuation but no numerals or diacritics yet as I first wanted some feedback on the letters/overall feel so far. I'm also figuring out Open Type along the way with some ligatures, stylistic alternates, possibly swash characters, but I'm only just beginning.
This is the regular weight and I'd to make light & bold weights and an italic at least to start with. I've been working on the spacing for a while but it's still got a lot of fixing to do; there are some combinations I just can't seem to get right. There is no kerning or hinting yet (save for automatic hinting when generating).
Thanks very much in advance! It's really appreciated.
