    Hi Ofir!

    Thank you very much for the feedback and super insightful suggestion!

    I would like to know if the 7x5 grid makes sense (even though some letter do not exactly fall into that) or if you would suggest go with a 7x7 or if that is not really an issue. What grid have you used? 

    Any other parameters you suggest since you have played with it?

    I have to start the font in FA and try to catch up with you. :) My pace will be much MUCH slower as this is a side project and I have no experience whatsoever on your tool, so please bear with me. I have already watched a bunch of the vids for FontArk, but getting hands on on a new app is always harder. I tried it but I had no project in mind at the time.

    Anyway, I will start my project there, but I would be happy if could share some specifics now that you have tried the concept yourself.

    Thanks a lot and congratulations on FA, it's really inspiring - literally. It changed completely the way I see typography.

    Oh, by the way, I'm starting a blog about typography for the brazilian / portuguese speaking audience, we could do an interview, it would be a great feature to start things. Are you up to it? The blog will be called Tipo Tipo ('tipo' is typeface as you may guess and 'tico-tico' is a bird, featured in the famous Carmem Miranda song).

    Very happy for the help! Let me know if any!

      Paulo, I will gladly guide you with the Fontark basics as much as needed.
      Fontark is very simple to work with, but you have to understand the functionality of it's asvanced features in order to get the most of it.
      We can share screens and I will show you all there is to know, and I'm sure you'll master it very quickly.
      And I will gladly be interviewed for your blog :)

      Just noticed that here is some kind of public "wall" I guess. I've answered you at the message system also, but sure, let's do a screen sharing session! Thanks!!
