HERE it is... a rough design of my next typeface. I certainly took the advice from Joshua! SO thank bud! I owe it to you! I need to tweak this a bit but, I hope I can have it finish soon. Please, let me know if you have any awesome constructive criticism! I would greatly appreciate it! CHEERS :D!

Thanks buddy! I want to send it out and have a few people test it out!
Nice! Crossbar/leg on the R is too thick though.
@Trevor: Thanks bud! I thought so too! But, I appreciate you bringing that up. I will have to tweak it and see what you think?
J : )
dope typeface dawg! if I may call you like that....
I know I need to finish this thing we're doing, I'm slow!
Fantastic work, Nick! (:
@Daniel: Dude trust me no worries! We will get it done my friend! You can call me whatever! dawg is pretty chill compared what others call me at work lol.
You and Trevor already caught the "R" I see. The crossbar on the "K" seems a bit low. Is there a reason you chose to make it lower than the other letters?
Btw, I'm loving it.
@Jake: At first it look sick! I Kinda like it but, I already noted that it needs to be similar with the rest! Thanks Jake for the heads up though it help me figure out what I need to do next bud :D!
#Boom! — where can I get it?
Looking really good Nick! That 'K' is terrific, it looks like it's crouching, haha. Love what you've done with the 'Q' too, such a weirdly wonderful shape. Aside from what Trevor mentioned, a couple of other things I noticed:
- 'W' seems very wide compared to letters like 'U', 'N', 'M', etc. (Actually 'N' seems a bit too narrow anyway looking at the letters after it).
- 'Z' seems too thin/light overall, especially compared to the 'Y' next to it.
- 'T' crossbar is a bit wide (it's creating a big gap on either side)
Nice improvements on 'S' by the way!
@Claire: LOVE the feedback!!! Certainly, you advice is highly appreciated! It is really going to help my fix this a bit. I'm going to have to ask you to review it once I revise it. Since you are one of the greats on this great site that involves anything with typography!
Never drawn a full typeface though ;) Sounds great, would love to review it anytime!
WHAT! I don't believe that! I think you need too! I think everyone would run to the door to get to use it first!
Haha, thankfully I've got Joe as motivator coach :D Anyway, looking forward to seeing more this!
In my eyes, the X is a bit too thick, maybe reduce one stroke, so it has two different stroke widths like the other glyphs.
I really like these serifs, especially at the E. The name also fits perfectly!
Joe is the man when it comes to fonts!
Looks great Nick!
As for some constructive critique > 'D/C/G' look a bit wide to my eye. Same with the 'O' (but I know you've got the 'Q' width to manage). Agree with Claire RE the 'W', but I definitely dig the style. Also loving that 'K', but I actually think it could be a bit touch wider (looking to the 'H/N'). One minor thing that's bugging me is the foot on your 'L'... I think you've created a few options that would be better suited.
Overall, love the style. Keep hammering at it!
Thanks Mike! All the points you and everyone else made is awesome! I certainly am excited to fix this and get it done and out there! Thanks again!!
Looks good so far Nick! A couple of things besides mentioned from above, the top part of the 'J' and 'L' seem to be naked. I think you need to add another serif on the opposite side just like the two you have on 'I'. Does that make sense? Other than that pretty cool work and always love low crossbars.
Btw, I bet Claire has completed many typefaces but she's to humble to admit it :) Don't fall for her trap Nick! Hah cheers.
