This fontstruction was started because I suddenly got fascinated by triangles in Emigre's Matrix font. The triangles got lost somewhere along the development...leaving this hodgepodge of serifs. Look closely, almost all the serifs are different. The question is, which works the best? That's where you come in. Help me decide how to proceed.

Usually, when it happens to me (pretty often I would say), I clone the font an try to develop each separate version according its own model. Then I don’t finish either one… ;-)
Anyway, I think that the serif (more the whole straight terminal) on 'e' doesn’t work. Also the lower left serif on 'i' (while the upper left one is very nice).

Beautiful, hope to see it finished soon! (Don't really know what else to say, except that I like the second k better which you used in the sample.)

fantastic look forward to seeing it finished

The 'k' is gorgeous, as is the 'g' (although I quite like the 'g' 2nd from the left - used in the 1st sample). I also like the little upward flip on the bottom serifs (on the 'h', 'i', 'n' in first sample).
A great design in the making.

Very cool!

This can be tweaked endlessly, but it is essentially done. *whew*

Inktraps, overshoots. A very difficult fontstruction, no wonder you've spent so much effort on this. Awesome result in the end!

You display your indepth knowledge of typeface design here... Ascenders and descenders are awesome. I wasn't so sure about the t first but the longer you at it in context the more sense it makes! Needless to say: 10/10

An impressive project!

Ata is working on non-modular readable typefaces. This is a good thing! Critiques: The lowercase t is unexpected. It is interesting how ligatures are automatically formed in some instances. The T seems a bit wide and the width spacing on its right is tucked in too much. The left foot of the N seems to be a little anemic when juxtaposed with the thicker serifs of other capital letters. I do like the fusion of styles that you've incorporated and hope you develop more text based typefaces. Its a pleasure to see your continued activity here.
