This is stunning work. I've seen a lot of fonts around here, but nothing as professional-grade as this. Thank you very much for sharing.

I like the long ascenders, and the entire look. I agree P could be a little fuller, but N looks fine to me.

I never had a clue about how interesting fonts could be, until I took some design classes a few years ago. It was an eye opener.

I'm not a fan of really long ascenders, but the big capitals do look very attractive with the small lowercase. Very nice shapes in letters like c/r/j/m. U/V/W also look particularly attractive, and the Q is downright awesome.

Perhaps the bowl of P could be a bit bigger, and the No symbol seems to be falling to the right; I think you might have to lower the /o a bit.

Beautiful presentation as well.

Thank you for your kind feedback, I was curious as to what your thoughts on this would be.

Funny that you mention the Q as an attractive character. I thought so too, but I had wondered if it might be out of place a bit. I agree with you about the P, it's one letter I particularly struggled with. As it is, the P's bowl is similar to that of the the R, yet reduced horizontally. It is quite small, but with this shape I was able to come to the best overall spacing and performance of the font. So as much as I regret, the P, for now, was sacrificed for the sake of the font overall. :(

Actually, to be honest, I struggled with this whole design. It's unusual shapes made spacing and kerning especially difficult. I did not think I was ever going to get it finished!

In the end, I think I wanted something more for this font, but I was determined to complete it. .. I would like to improve upon this typeface sometime when I am better skilled to do so.

And thanks for your compliments on the presentation as well. Being an art nouveau-ish typeface design, in the presentation I tried to emulate title cards of silent films and at the same create something separate and new.

Now you mention it, Q does demand more attention than other letters, but I think that has more to do with the weight in the tail than the design. The part of the tail where the two strokes connect has a bit too much weight.

As for P, for some reason it even looks smaller vertically. Perhaps increase the width slightly, and alter the height of the bowl. It may look messy next to R, but it may just breath more life into P.

An other option is to make the bowl of P more open when you increase the width. I think since you probably altered R to get P you've already tested its various forms, but I would think the spacing is consistent if you don't close the bowl of P to such extent. After all, B and R are also open, and an open bowl will probably "rhyme" well with the terminal of C. Right now it seems you made the P rhyme with letters with smaller counters, which would be the lowercase. But then, since you generally only use a capital letter at the beginning of the sentence, I suppose the only option was to make it rhyme with the lowercase letters. I guess I eventually came to the same conclusion as you did.

I actually didn't think of title cards of silent films, but now you mentioned it, the influence is obvious. I think although I didn't make the connection on my own, what counts is that indeed the title cards give the presentation this suiting art deco (rather than art nouveau, and considering the design of the typeface you were right to go for art deco) appearance.

You know, now that you mention it, I think that I was concerned with the appearance of the P in relation to the R. In doing so, this P that leaves much to be desired was the best I could come up with. I think when I approach it again, I will keep in mind that it's not a pair for the R I am making, but a letter P, alone. For some reason I seem to have gone about the P as if I were trying to create the best match. Thanks for the suggestions, I think it can afford to be larger in height and in width, and I think opening it up will have a nice effect as well.

I am actually glad to hear that the title card connection was not so obvious, yet the style and period was. That is what I had hoped to do. :) (I used the term art nouveau because, the typeface definitely still draws from more ostentatious forms unlike the geometry ruled of art deco)

Thanks again so much :D

Well, I actually took the typeface to be more art deco than art nouveau, but I must admit I often mix the styles up. At least the background you created is art deco though.

No worries, I'm certainly not an expert and I too get them mixed up. The background I would say is very art deco :). I am fond of either style applied well in the right setting. :D

Same here. I'm not sure if you appreciate album covers for Metal bands, but I personally admire this designer for mixing Black Metal with art deco and art nouveau: [link]

Sure, I can appreciate album covers for metal bands, especially one such as inventive as the one you've linked to. They say you can't judge a book by it's cover and I suppose the same holds true for album covers, but I think such effort and originality put on an album cover could speak to a bands musical integrity.

The artwork is that much more impressive, being that it's a Black Metal band, where some tried and true staple themes are often repeated. But then again, it is a pretty specific genre, I guess those themes go with the territory.

It's not my cup of tea (Black Metal) per se, but I do appreciate the inventiveness, thought, and beautiful execution of the album art. ("Awaken")

While on the subject of my tastes, (lol XD) Type O Negative (:heart:) is about as dark as I go these days. I've "lightened" up a lot over the years. I still like the winged-coffin as a logo [link], but I do regret the tattoo [link].
