Max, we will have to agree to disagree about 90s and grunge […]
Also, the notch is in other letters, if you look at the pervious samples.
John - in regard to clunky geometric faces being used, maybe it just depends on the crowd your in, I seem to see them often.
E, H, L seem wide to me. O, P, Q, S, and maybe 4 seem a tad spindly. Maybe you could narrow T a bit and lengthen the semiserifs on the cross bar?
One thing you might look at, though: some of the glyphs seem funkier than others. Those composed largely of straight lines, like L, H, V, T, M, seem cleaner, more symmetrical, and more regular than those with curves, like G, S, R, B, P. For instance, I think that tiny notch at the northeast corner of the P needs to either appear in other glyphs or else go away.
The flat top of the G is really intriguing. But does this sort of thing need to occur in other rounded glyphs?
But I'm afraid I don't care for the grunge texture. Seems, dated, 90s. (Though I didn't like it in the 90s, either.)
Thanks for all the feedback everyone! Keep it coming!
I think the /G is pretty nice, so there's no reason to "hate it"... But I liked your older /V much better!
I'm pleasantly surprised by this thread. When I looked at the first post I had that sinking feeling that made me avoid the critique forums in The Other Place. Ugh, I thought, another one of those clunky geometric types that no one seems to have noticed never actually get used anywhere. But you've made something interesting out of it.
John - in regard to clunky geometric faces being used, maybe it just depends on the crowd your in, I seem to see them often. But I did not choose this direction for this font because of anything other than wanting to learn and begin afraid of curves.
Your updated S is starting to look very squarish and stiff.
