Another attempt to make a readable font narrower than Arial Narrow. I am basing the letters on ovals now, to try to make them easier for my eyes to deal with at small sizes.

Wow. You’ve put a lot of work into this.

Now that you’ve shifted to oval forms, the Cyrillic letter “Б” looks a bit off, because normally it’s not rounded on the left side of the bowl.

Great work jon. What I like the most about this is the rough finish. Brings a sense of handwriting feel to it. Really cool

Comment by Sed4tives Mon, 23rd December

One small point of criticism, the width of the lowercase v could be smaller, now its pretty wide compared with the overall character set. ;-)

Comment by Sed4tives Mon, 23rd December

What Sed4tives said; the v immediately stood out to me on viewing this.

I like this a lot. For such a condensed font, it's very readable. It has a high density without causing eye strain, which is something I feel I and many others have yet to accomplish. I particularly like the G and numerals.

Are the tiny circles guides of some kind or are those more of your techniques for making this font render properly in Visual Basic Studio? Right now they're making me think of Christmas ornaments.

Actually I sadly think it got corrupted since they were not previously present in the font. :-(

Comment by Sed4tives Wed, 25th December

I think readable high density fonts are my 'white whale'. I keep needing to use them in my work and documentation. This font seems to beat Arial Narrow at size 9. However still, Arial Narrow at size 8 is better to me than either. I keep working it.

Ah, you fixed the “Б”. Great job.
