I've never done a completely straight-laced body copy font. (Think Arial, Verdana, Trebuchet, etc.) So I thought it would make for a nice learning exercise.

I don't know if anyone will use it but me, but I am learning some interesting new things about type creation along the way!

I've created the alphabets for Regular and Condensed. I'm guessing there will be 8 fonts in the final set.

I think they look great, Nate. I use these types of fonts a lot even in my lettering. Awesome job as usual :)

Nice! I like the tails on the minuscule g and j, and the squarishness of the majuscule G. Is there a subtle angle in the verticals of the majuscule E and F?

Yes, there is indeed. That's about as wacky as I'm going to get with this font.
