New to Typophile? Accounts are free, and easy to set up.
After having sat lazily on an interest in Type Design for far too long, I've finally found the courage (through the help of a course at University) to delve into the wonderful world of fontlab.
I was hoping for some critique of what I've got so far, I have been working with a strict grid system which has worked well most of the time although I'm still having a lot of trouble with the s, z, x and c. Getting the spacing right has also been quite hard, (especially with the extremities on the r and e) and has led me to create a series of Ligatures which I believe solves the problem and adds more visual interest. I set these up as dlig in fontlab because I read somewhere that it was appropriate however, I'm tempted to just put them through as liga. Advisable?
I am fully aware that this font completely loses itself in small sizes, however I believe that in larger sizes when I've tweaked it properly, it could work really well.
What do you think?
