Fun!!! This is a really interesting unicase... some of the capitals take a backseat to overemphasized lc (the "e" for example, followed by the "H")

Is that really an "x"? I can't even make it out when it's sandwiched between the "w" and "y", but I love that!

makes me want a martini...

well, this doesn't exactly lead me to the drink. but... it does make me rethink my process of developing letterforms. i've been doing it in alph. order, but maybe it's better to choose some words or common clusters first. the x in the coffee stirrer typeface doesn't look like an x alone, but that's ok since it only needs to be read in context.

i think this is a chance to drop some conventions of what each letterform should look like. does an f really need to have a cross bar? if it didn't it might look like an r, but how many words can replace an r for an f and mean something?
