Morethan Just Font

Options
Hey guys!
My name is Stan. I am a graphic designer, and I work with fonts every day during the twelve years. And one time I have thought that I can try and create a simple font myself. But I don’t have experience in font creation. So, I will really appreciate your rational critique and advice.
Many thanks!

    Sidebearings and kerning look very tight, but that depends on the intended size. Punctuation generally too small. Mostly this just needs more careful drawing—less clunky straights-into-curves, consistency of thicknesses and parallelness on diagonals, more thinning on joins in the regular weight. Don't get too far out front in filling out the character set; keep adjusting those curves until they are more harmonious. And forget kerning until last.

    Also, I think your extrabold would probably be better just referred to as bold.

    Thank you so much. Your feedback really valuable to me! I will try to fix these points.
