Strange goth font with a bizarre vanishing effect making it alien and hard to read because some strokes completely vanished. Weird.

Personally I think I would have used your o instead of your u wich is a bit weak. For me your o is a perfect u. Type text using o for u and you will see. But I don't know how could be your o then.

How is the new "o" holding up?
Comment by jmarquez 8th April 2010
This works really well in the last sample and sample text - strong, yet a bit ethereal. - Looking forward to seeing UC, numerals etc :)

According to me, o and u are good. Reading this font feels like solving a mystery. But the accents are maybe a little too straight ?
Comment by igorrossi 8th April 2010
the new o is certainly more effective.
I agree with IR : the accents are too straight , but maybe your grid limits too much the possibilities

Thanks all for the feedback!
I changed the diacritics, please be aware that this font is very experimental, and blocks of text doesn't suit it, I don’t even know why I did diacritics in the first place…

Now it's totally awsome ! I typed and typed text it definitely functions perfectly. And thanx for your effort on the accents, in french we desesparately need them. Excellent job !

I'm sure the new diacritics have something to do with your success... Congrats!

brilliant. outstanding in many ways. visually a treat at various sizes. i love the effect seen in the sample text where you can read it, but sort of bends the mind because of your unconventional choices. cool.

Thanks funk_king and zen_killa!
Progress with uppercase and figures will be slow, but don’t lose patience, stay tuned.

More and more this font becomes evident and functional while remaining completely original.I wonder, do you think it would be appropriate to marry this font as textfont with my recent Churching Drop Caps font ? I think they would fit very well together...
Comment by Abneurone Fluid Types 16th April 2010
Great font: it looks as if designed by removing bricks instead of adding them, up to the minimum configuration that still allows readability. Less is more, as usual!
Comment by Em42 17th April 2010
Thank you Neurone and Em42!
@ Neurone: you’re welcome to try. But it won’t be very readable in blocks of text.
Comment by jmarquez 19th April 2010
Pity you're right, it is magnified in short blocks of texts like your samples, definitely a display fonts, maybe could use it as intermediary short blocks of text in big size between my dropcaps and a more textfont
