Hi folks: Newbie here, hoping to get a little feedback on my first typeface.
Just to briefly introduce myself: I'm a graphic designer (my day job is in publication design) who's always been interested in type design, but I'm only now getting serious about it. I've been drawing letters most of my life and do some lettering here and there, so I'm no stranger to constructing characters and words — but I'm basically teaching myself the technical side of how to make typefaces, through trial and error and a lot of reading. I'm at a point where I could use some outside eyes on what I'm up to!
Anyway, the basic idea with this was a typeface with no curves, but in no way college-y or sports-y — so it's
got some contrast and some asymmetry. Definitely a display face. I'm pretty happy with where it's going.
My current struggles are:
starting to second-guess myself on the spacing, so if there's anything
that jumps out as weird, that'd be good to know (see PDF)
2) trying to decide
between a more-pointy and a less-pointy version of the "round"
characters. (I might include both as stylistic alternates, but not sure
if the default should be more quirky or less.)
