Not very readable, either. Sigh.
Comment by intaglio 15th march 2010
Sweet and psychedelic small-scale ’structing, tag!

Reminds me of another favorite of mine, Basmachi, but smoooooooth. Love the K, X, a and g/q.

I think the B and R would benefit from that brickstacking detail you worked into the knee of the K. While nice on its own terms, the p fits this theme better with a fat baseline stroke.

The singular legibility issue is still a doozy: the e. You already found the best possible solution. Flipping the terminal so it points down provides a modicum of improvement, but any minor legibility gain is a wash since it’s perhaps too big a stylistic departure. Hey, it still works at display sizes. :-)

Yee Ha!!! Westerny, Circusy, Fairgroundy ... loverly :)

Would it be worth moving the letter spacing of the q a bit to the left?

Thanks everybody for the kind comments. And thal for the fab sampler. Rainbow effects look so juicy in RGB. I'm stuck with CMYK in my work so it's groovy to see all those groovy ungettable colours on a monitor.

this font contains so much joy. when you have something this much fun, issues like kerning become inconsequential. congrats.
Comment by funk_king 21st march 2010
Ahh, the playful side of intaglio.

Looking it more closely, I'd experiment with fattening the bottom of the p, to match the q.

I like that funky z.
