The "R" in question in use.
about 1 year ago
Definitely gotta use this one. It's weird, and uncomfortable, and completely gripping.
The r, k, and a (because of the slanted terminals) look a tiny bit shorter than the terminals that sit directly on the lines. If you extended them slightly above and below the top and bottom of the other letters it may make them look more cohesive.
What if you moved that leg 5-10 points to the left to alleviate some of that fatness where the bowl/curve meets the angled leg. Optically it's sitting a little above the baseline, might try to compensate for that as well. I like it though...it's quirky.
To be honest, I normally wouldn't like the slanted terminals at all, but somehow they work really well here. I think it's the character of the font that makes it go so well, the subtle roundness and squat shapes. It has a lot of character, great work so far!
Thanks guys. These are all awesome suggestions. I totally agree about the leg being short.
