I started this typeface back in April and haven’t really touched it in a month or so. Before my hiatus I figured out a few of the rules on certain letter combinations and I also started on a light version. I’ve been meaning to get back on this so I can finish it up but I’m just dreading the thought of having to create a font out of this. I love designing the characters but when I took a look at some of the font applications out there it really killed my motivation. I know it’s part of the process but I’ve always hated the “production” part of any project.

Anyway, let me know what you think.

    Looks really nice. Reminds me a little of Avant Garde. I really like the “Q,” but I think the W and M should come to a sharp point.

    I don’t really like it. It looks like the sort of letters that small engineering companies use in their in-house logos, drawn with a compass and protractor.

    If you’re going to cut the terminals of the Y and Z on the vertical, you need to extend the points beyond the baseline and E-line a bit. Optically, if you end them right on the lines, they look shorter than the horizontally cut terminals. Take a look at a light weight of Futura to see what I mean (set an E and a V and an A right next to one another).

    Andrew thanks. I tried the W and M like that but I just thought they look more interesting this way.

    Stephen, do you mean that the ends of the characters should end in a point? I’m not 100% sure what you mean here. I checked out EVA in Futura Light and I’m not sure what you mean.
