Hello. I'm a newbie typography enthusiast and this is my first attempt at creating a font.
This typography was designed initially as academic work, to compose a fashion catalog made with Amazonian materials. It does not have a good read on screen and be a little thinner is better in negative. Honestly I have no idea what is the level of use of this work. but any critique or advice would be greatly appreciated. Thank you!
But I want to say that there are quite a lot of features in your type I like very much...
I think the /f is very expressive, in a good manner. The /b/p/d as well.
As for the rest of the wavy vertical lines, having too much of it doesn't work well, I think you should either straighten them up or try waving them in another manner/direction. If you'll look at an Amazonian forest you will see that the branches don't wave in the same direction
The /e is adorable, and the /a is cool too. The /ff /fi /if ligatures are great (the /fl less).
The upper-case set is less good than the lower case and it is condensed while the lowercase are at normal width and I think it doesn't match well.
The /g is foreign and the /N is disturbing me a bit.
You have a lot of work here on spacing, balancing letter width, consistency of stroke width and many other things I didn't mention.
It is a big challenge for a first font. I'd recommend to keep on working on it only for a while, then practising the basics of type design on a standard Roman typeface and then getting back to it.
The upper-case Set are the oldest part of the font, unless modified, less improved, it takes me to drop something like that, but I admit I was starting and displease the / N.
When you say it would be a good idea to change the direction of the wave, is talking to switch to horizontal bars, like to / z / Z / L / T ...
I'll post here also the changes made in my type. As the project is in very changed decide to drop the name. Now called Anfíbia. Well I took vacation from college to give a finished this project. I imagine missing much to be final, but I arrived at a point where I can not go it alone. I would give help and criticism of you over typography.
from now I appreciate the help and critical of you.
