Hello, all. I just can't make this (these) work... many of the individual bits are nice, but as a whole, they don't link up—much like the nearby eponymous highway, there are all sorts of things breaking up the flow of traffic. (Yes, there are issues with spacing and kerning, especially in the italic UC and all forms of the numeral 7, but these will evolve with the letters.) Can you give me some pointers? I'm past the point of objectivity, just from sheer exhaustion and overexposure!
Is roman /a too wide? Does roman /g seem too... sly? slinky? Is italic /S too wide? Is the roman /S too wide? The roman lc and UC don't entirely match; maybe it's Dutch vs. French influences? And the real issue: the italic lc... it seems too stiff, too static, too fugly, and the flags on the tall letters don't seem to match. Most of the individual letters are pretty, but they just don't want to work together.
