I'm a freelance graphic designer that mostly specializes in logo designs. and during late 2018 I discovered my burning love for type and lettering. I'm doing self-study through youtube videos, asking for a solid critique of people that are well educated with type.
I'm doing lettering for only a year or so now. At the end of 2019, I decided to venture on font making since some people encourage me to build my own fonts when they see my lettering.
Heres my very first font. a modern looking slab serif. I mostly envision this font to be used in college or school shirt designs. Maybe it could also be used in some tech-related industries.
Heres my self-analysis on this font.
- I'm still not satisfied with how the cuts are placed, do you think you could suggest on how I can properly place the cuts? Especially on the W, M, N, Y, and X.
- Some characters look a bit heavier especially "0(zero)" where in fact, I have modeled all the letters with the same weight.
Im really looking for a detailed or in-depth critique to further improve this font. Hope you guys could help me
