*legibell trnsprt

Hello all!

This is my first typeface and I have been working on it for a few months now. I was inspired by large families like Scala and Nexus and also others like titillium and Interstate. So I created this and *legibell txt (can be found under critique > serif). My goal is to create a nice, readable, unique transportation font family with multiple weights (I'll add them once I am happy with the general design of the regular). I've worked a bit on the kerning and spacing, but it's not all sorted out yet; I just really wanted some feedback on the look and design of it.

Any critique or commentary would be great! Thanks,

Nice work. It reads very well. It's sharp, clean and, well, likeable. You've made a lot of nice choices with the descenders. And I can imagine with such an economical style you're working with, the capital Q was a challenge, but you solved it nicely. Overall, I like it quite a bit. I can't think of anything bad to say about it. Good job!

It has a nice feel to it but lowercase k looks very black and congested in the bold and I find the angle of the top of the ascenders a little too steep. Am I too conservative when I say I would like the d to have the same angle on the ascender as all the others

Reminds a bit of Interstate because of angular cut verticals.
