  • Re: Quador – a squarish serif

    In the sample above I replaced the teardrops with rectangled terminals to go further with the idea of a squarish serif. What do you think?

    I like the rectangled /a/, its bowl has character. I would use that bowl.

    1. The bowl doesn't look balanced to me. The right half looks more squarish then the left half, especially at the bottom (is it vertically symmetrical?). You've probably moved the arches away from the vertical stem too much, or didn't change the right half to match the new shape of the left half.

    2. I think you've started thinning the bowl too soon, which contributes to the impression of imbalance. I'd have it starting to thin only after the "corners".

    3. The segment where the vertical stem and the bowl coincide looks too wide, in my opinion. The interior of the bowl should probably eat a little into the vertical stem.

    Bottom. In the top line the O's could use some/more overshoot.

    The link is broken, and I'm too lazy to copy-paste your username. I'm sure most people are like me. Anyhow, if you want to get serious feedback, upload here a PDF file with text example.
  • Re: Sailboat – a grotesque

    /u is too wide (and maybe /v too narrow)
    /1 could use some overshooting (upwards)
    /G would probably look nicer if its north-east end bent a little less (or you could try moving the top extreme to the left)
    bottom half of /3 looks too small (try pulling the bottom end to the left, leaving the top end at the same place)
