My very first serif font. First dreamt about the "u" one year ago, FS 2.0 made it possible. Inspiration comes from classic fonts like Georgia, Optima, Times. Bonus feature: "f" kinda automatically ligature :D Not yet satisfied with k, t, x, z, comments/help welcome!

Nice work! Not sure about the 'z'.
Waiting to see the figures...
Comment by caliopigio 2nd august 2010
Great work. I agree with caliopigio about the z. I would try putting square corners on the lower-left and upper-right corners.
Comment by aphoria 2nd august 2010
This is such a good design, I will look forward to seeing it grow and, I must admit, to seeing that z altered. :) 10/10
Comment by p2pnut 2nd august 2010
This really is a stunningly good use of the fontstruct bricks, I especially like the fluidity of the strokes, the balanced weight to it all. I hope you continue to uppercase :)
Comment by nazlfrag 2nd august 2010
agree, agree, agree, agree...really good work!
Comment by Tylo 2nd august 2010
thanks you all for your comments!
I fixed the "z" and added figures, and I am thinking about the uppercase...

edit: uppercase done!

Comment by afrojet 8th august 2010
Congrats for the top pick. I don't know if you want another advice but: how about re-doing the B and the R thinking in the K (whic is superb)?
Comment by caliopigio 8th august 2010
An interesting looking font, very characteristic. And thanks for your comment :)
Comment by skeets 9th august 2010
Thanks for the pink dot!

@Caliopigio: thanks for your comment! As I wasn't totally satisfied with B, I tried some little alterations, then continued with R and E.

Maybe it deserves a sample image.

"...and the mome raths out grave."
I like a lot your font and I like your election about the Jabberwocky poem. I like so much "Alice in Wonderland"! The borogoves is my first strange word between all! And it's not the unique!
Still at work, please.
