first

This is my first post, so: Hello! I'm not a type designer by trade, but I've been interested in typography for 25 years. A few months ago, I finally bought Glyphs and started noodling around. I had no goal, and wasn't looking at any references, but what came out was this friendly blend of Avenir and Akzidenz, with capitals that are more upright and American. Somehow, the more I tried to remove my own hand, the more of a self portrait it became. Has anyone experienced that?

Anyway, it has already been a fascinating process, but at this point, I'd love some feedback. I'm open to any type of comment or critique. I have 3 masters so far.

What is the first computerized typeface?

No name for this bugger yet. It's my first attempt at creating a full alphabet plus punctuation for an actual font release! Inspiration came from a custom logotype I created that was not commissioned, it's a great excuse to dive into FontLab and see what it's all about. This will be an all caps display font, released at some point this year. Here is a screenshot of the regular and outline versions. I've attached a PDF for closer inspection.

Hey fellow Typophiles! This is my first post here, as well as my first logo. I would love your input on it!
