Hi guys,

Throughout the past few years I've become more and more obsessed with typography. So much so, that I've now decided I'm going to create my own.

I present to you: Camber - a delicate and tiny seriffed type.



Please be aware that this is my very first attempt at a typeface, and not yet produced in a font editing application, so nothing is set in stone just yet - especially the letter spacing.

I'd just like some feedback on my lowercase before I move on to CAPS or numbers. Please let me know what you think.

I like it - it's plain but fancy if you get what I mean. Pretty stylish. Keep going msn_grin.gif

Thanks Natalie, I've made a few changes.



- Thinner crossbars on the t and f
- Pointed bottom of the v
- More unified tails on a, g, f, t and e
- Reduced overshoot
- Corrected shape inconsistencies with s, g and a
- Every lowercase letter of the english alphabet

I like it, but I'm personally more of a fan of thick bold type fonts.

Does your have support for bold and itallics?

I have plans for semibold, bold and italic faces once I've completed the standard version but I suppose that will be a while off yet.

You should host your font on things like www.fonts.com

See if you can sell it for like $5 or something. I'd buy it.
