Very nice design! I like the hand-lettered appearance. This seems quite a good choice for comic books and such if a typeface with a subtle typewriter appearance is required.

There are so many reasons why I like this font. Firstly, you’ve included accented characters! I say this all the time whenever I’m commenting on a font, and I’m sure it makes me sound like a broken record, but as a French speaker, it’s definitely something I look for in a font. Such characters are a good way to please foreign language speakers, I think. d: Also, this font is reminiscent of typewriter characters, which is something that I appreciate. I’m not sure why I like the typewriter look so much, but I do. What’s interesting about this one is that you’ve saved it from looking boring and bland. This kind of font can definitely be dull to most people, but I think you’ve managed to throw a bit of fun in it. Unfortunately, because of this, I wouldn’t use it in documents like essays, or anything official, but you can be sure that I’ll be looking for opportunities to show it off. Good work!

thanx !
merci beaucoup pour ce commentaire, qui donne envie de retater un peu fontlab & co. !
en fait je suis français, c'est pour ça que j'ai fait les accents...

Ah, bon! Je crois que je l'avais deviné quand j'ai vu le preview de la police, mais j'ai dû oublier, sinon j'aurais écrit mon commentaire en français. En tout cas, quelle que soit la raison, je suis vraiment contente que les accents sont là. C'est ennervant quand il y a des polices que j'adore, mais que je ne peux pas utiliser parce qu'il manque les accents dont j'ai besoin. >:

I really wanted someone who knew what they were doing to make me a font. But I don't know what to offer in return for something that is so labour intensive. (Something that takes so long!) :)

If im honest, i dont like it. It looks kinda plastic, an at times unbalanced...

but then it does look a bit like Courier an i cant stand that font either. Dont get me wrong it has its place but so many people use it cos it looks 'old' or like, as someone has already said, typewriting!!

My main issue is that if someone wants a font that 'looks' like a typewriter font then why not jus type it out on a typewriter and scan it in instead of makin somethin which 'looks' like it!

It seems that in this day an age so many people are so quick to jump onto the computer thinkin that it will solve all of their problems an make them a 'designer', an that simply isnt the case. As you can tell this is an issue that i have thought about a lot, sorry dont feel like i am gettin at you!!lol

Its not so bad i guess, jus looks wrong in places....unbalanced an certain letters really dont look like they would sit well together, i know that is supposed to be the idea but typographically it doesnt work.

ANYWAY, its nothin personal i assure you....plus we are all here to offer our opinions i guess, an this is jus mine. I guess criticism helps us all improve?

haha ! :) you want to apologize whereas i didn't have the time to answer ! :)
Anyway, thanx for this long comment, and taking the time to type it. You're right about criticism, that's what i think... ;)

You're right, it looks a little like Courier, because i watched the Courier font on my screen, then i drew it with a marker on a paper.
I didn't create this font to replace the typewriter (and typewriter fonts), because in fact i don't even think it looks like a typewriter font...

Typography (on computer or not...) is something that really interests me, and this is my first finished font (I once tried to create one, but i gave up, as you might guess, it was a handwriting script... like any people who wants to create its first font). This time, i wanted to finish my work, so that's why you can see this font here...
At the beginning, i was not going to create a font... i was just training to draw letters on a paper.
But i digitalized it, and someone told me i should share it, so that's what i did... ;)

Regarding the shape of the letters, I know that some letters look fuckin' bad (R, K, k, m,...), but i'll try to give them a better shape when i'll find some time...

Nice work. I've seen some other uneven typewriter fonts, but this one has a different feel to it. It's uneven, but it all fits together. I think the capitals are especially nice. I'm not sure what it is, though.
