Hey guys,

First shot at making a typeface thought I'd start off with an all caps design based off an old sign. Just running it by you guys for any suggestions or comments.

Hi Reid. Great job so far. This looks like a fun project! It is very cool that you're basing your design on this pre-existing vintage signage.

Something doesn't feel right with the S. I wonder if you could try to bring some of the top-heaviness consistent with the rest of the alphabet into the S. You might do well to depart from the S that is given in the signage.

I agree, the S needs more “horizontality”.
I think that the top should be somehow closer to the C for example, and remember to keep the waistline quite low, like you did on the 5.
I'm also not very sure about the 6, the bottom part seems a bit awkward I reckon. I might be wrong, but I think it needs to be a bit wider.
