    Would it work to thin the top crossovers of the /w as you have with the corresponding ones on the /m? I think that would make it more legible.

    That said, I have to work pretty hard to see the /m as an /m. Maybe a deeper cut on the vertex?
  • Dafont has been hacked

    This morning I got a notification from that my credentials at have been exposed due to a data breach. Zdnet has the story. If you have a dafont account, please change your password, and if you use that password on other sites too... don't do that.

    Etymology is not semantics - infantry does not mean "child soldiers".
  • Show me your failures!

    Last night I watched Nina Stössinger's TypoBerlin 2012 talk "The Importance of Being Ernestine". The best part for me as a new designer was when she talked about her early efforts in type design and "the ugliest ampersand in the history of the world":

    It was supremely encouraging to be reminded that we all start in pretty much the same place but it is possible, with patience and determination, to get from there to excellence.

    So, I've got to ask - does anyone else feel brave enough to show us their embarrassing failures? In my day job I'm convinced we learn better by looking at things that didn't work and asking why not, rather than looking at things that did work and asking why; I'm sure the same is true here.

    That looks amazing. Will there be videos afterwards?
