I've reduced the big lower arc of the "j". It seems better, I think. Other sugestions, please?
Comment by elmoyenique 28th may 2011
I love the feeling of the first sample. Shows for what the font is made. Well done!
ps: DdDd? A measure because of space?
pps: 'E' is awesome!

@Tylo: The "Ddouble" was a mistake (trembly finger, I know). Do you think I must rescate the first "j" so wide? I liked it but I think it crashed the legibility of the words what begans with it. What is your opinion, please?
Comment by elmoyenique 30th may 2011
Your j revision is a smart one. Chopping the friendly tail, though a certain loss of funkitude, aids in legibility for words beginning with j and, even more, improves the setting of words with j in the middle. The relatively huge negative space the first one creates mid-word is not a decent tradeoff for such a stylish design. Plus, it matches better with l.

I suggest you fatten the diagonals of your x as much as possible without losing the form. With counters in every quadrant, it appears a bit light and slender in comparison.

I also want to see what your f looks like with an arm as fat as the tail of your j and a half-brick cross stroke. Your t works pretty well as is, largely due to cross stroke alignment with the x-height.

@will.i.ૐ: Thanks a lot for your opinions. I've changed the "x" and I've maked a new "f" more similar to the "j", but I do not sure about their legibility. I put a sample... I need more comments, please.

The new "f" is at the "Ä".
Comment by elmoyenique 30th may 2011
Sorry, I couldn’t paint my words as clearly as an image does. Here’s what I meant. But I also like this new ƒ as a groovy alternate, for use where appropriate.

I think the deeper design criterion I am pointing to is how your use of filled or partly filled counters creates a type of reverse contrast (thick horizontal/diagonal strokes paired with thinner stems). So distinctive to my eyes, I want to see the pattern applied consistently throughout the font – as often as possible, that is, without creating other legibility issues.

@will.i.ૐ: Thaaanks a lot for your continuous help and dedication, I've added your sugestions for the "f" and "F" glyphs into the font.
@meek: Thanks for the TP, boss!
@intaglio: Thank you very much for your kindly words, I apreciate it but I think they are too much for me.

I just love the heaviness. It works well for text.

I love the childish feeling in your fonts, nice one here :)
Comment by Michel Troy ~UrbanPixel~ (Upixel) 4th june 2011
@Upixel: Merci bien, mon ami! Mais je ne sais vraiment pas pourquoi mes fonts vous semble si drôle, peut-être parce que chaque jour je suis plus vieux et je reviens à l'enfance... (Je dis cela en plaisantant).
Thank you, my friend! But I really do not know why my fonts you seem so funny, maybe because every day I'm older and I go back to childhood... (I say this jokingly).

Some funky minutes on our works, please look at this performance: the Firefox team wants to put our marks on the web!
I add one sample. I like it.
