Beautiful! - or should that read beateful!
Comment by p2pnut 21st february 2014
Awesome, as always. Your recent sample reveals the V to be very D-like – humorously suggesting your cheeky request be read as “PLEASE DOTE”. ;)

who won scriptcomp? (no dis to the winner) anyway... this is truly outstanding and gives me that tingly feeling inside that certain fonts give me.
Comment by funk_king 6th march 2014
Merlin's beard, what a delight! Your design is as delicious as a fruitcake freshly out of the oven (nach Hausrezept). It is full of zest, there are so many clever solutions, your hallmarks are all over it. The x is very similar to א (aleph). It would serve as a good starting point, should you decide to make a Hebrew character set in the future.

Yes, db Slow could have been a winner at last year's Connected Script competition (with some modifications, of course), as funk_king suggested above. I dare say, this is one of the best typeface we've seen here at Fontstruct, ever. 10/10

Comment by Michel Troy ~UrbanPixel~ (Upixel) 4th july 2014
Every time I come back to this, I think, "My word! This is insane!"

That B, that Z, that k, r, s, x, 3.... How do you come up with such things?!?
Comment by ETHproductions 16th june 2015
When I look at your fonts, I always feel awe, and a part of me thinks, I can do something similar, while the more sane part of me feels, there's no way I can ever do anything remotely as nice. You are amazing.
