Lovely shapes, and the 'rough curves' only show at larger sizes ;) which many people don't use when writing informative texts ...

but yes, experiment with those sets of bricks in the fonts that p2p mentioned. They could be useful for many future glyphs.
Comment by Aeolien 7th january 2015
@p2pnut: Thank you so much! I am eternally grateful.
@Aeolien: Thanks!
Comment by Atlantis L. (Jack Lee Jie) 8th january 2015
Nice! Maybe you could extend the cross stroke of the t a little.
Comment by minidonut 8th january 2015
Use overshoot, maybe?
Comment by Evie Atarax (j4s13) 8th january 2015

Comment by Rob Meek (meek) 9th january 2015
@meek: Thanks for the TP! I am eternally grateful.
@minidonut: Thanks!
@j4s13: I'll do it right away.
Comment by Atlantis L. (Jack Lee Jie) 9th january 2015
Is the Ø okay? Because I think it kinds of looks like a zero with a stroke.
Comment by Atlantis L. (Jack Lee Jie) 9th january 2015
Beautiful simple work with curves.
Comment by Ivy Meadows (Isaiah Garcia) 9th january 2015
@Isaiah Garcia: Thank you!
Comment by Atlantis L. (Jack Lee Jie) 10th january 2015
This is coming along really well - congratulations on the TP.

I would do the O with stroke more like this ...
Comment by p2pnut 10th january 2015
@p2pnut: Your suggestion is good, but I've tried that, and that didn't work out, as each stroke of my font is only two blocks in width, and I tried to make composites, but it didn't work.
Comment by Atlantis L. (Jack Lee Jie) 10th january 2015
Try this composite tool. All Composites In My Bricks It's the best original and still the best tool to use. :)
Comment by djnippa 10th january 2015
I've already got it. But those composites don't work with that Ø.
Comment by Atlantis L. (Jack Lee Jie) 11th january 2015
About the Ø: don't worry too much about it. As a Dane, I can tell you it is perfectly legible as it is :)
Comment by Christian Munk (CMunk) 12th january 2015
Great design!

May I suggest something? I would push the terminal of the a slightly to the right. And the t and f look a bit smaller than the rest of the lower case. You could consider pushing the arms of both a bit higher.

But I gave you a 10 anyway... ;-)
Comment by laynecom 13th january 2015
Pretty sans serif. Lots of work, endless stream of improvements, apparently. You must be a perfectionist, what is very proper for a typeface designer. 10/10
Comment by Frodo7 21st january 2015
Thanks everybody.
Comment by Atlantis L. (Jack Lee Jie) 23rd january 2015
If LE-A is done, I might download it, it's just too awesome to just look at.

@Frodo7: do pixel perfectionists count as well? I love making pixel art (with limited palettes, mostly the NES one).
Comment by minidonut 24th january 2015
(oh, and by LE-A, I mean Latin Extended-A, idk wherever the hyphen has to be)
Comment by minidonut 24th january 2015
Great design; it's very consistent! I can't wait to see the rest of the family.
Comment by ETHproductions 1st february 2015
Wow impressive work, Bravo

Comment by Michel Troy ~UrbanPixel~ (Upixel) 27th march 2015
