I mean font creation that is.

Thanks guys for the comments.

@mike. Cheers mate. Stoked you like. Yeah, whilst originally it was meant to be pronounced NUBBY (the serifs being nubb-like), I have been pronouncing it NEWBIE for the same reason you mentioned. Either way I quite like although newbie seems to be sticking.

@uscila Thanks for the massive compliment. I will definitely be doing another font. Lots of work, but it's rewarding when it's all finished.

Nicely done, Matt. Got it, love it! :)

Really excited to use it. I know what goes into a font, takes a lot of (dedication). I can tell that you started from scratch and not used an existing font if I'm correct, and that's impressive. I think this font has great potential, looking forward to a bolder version too.

Sweet work Matt...thx

@ Mike Bruner: Cheers mate! Stoked you like. I'm pumped on fast-tracking the bold and italic versions now that people are showing interest. Thanks for the support.

@Mick Erickson: Thanks again, Mike. Yep! All from scratch. At the start I actually tried to set myself a challenge to see how I could get on without even referencing another font. So for the best part of it, it was all off the top of the dome. When I got serious about making it a real working font, I went back through it and cross-checked consistencies that a couple of popular fonts had, studying a lot of the characteristics certain letters shared and then refined my version.

@Nitish: Cheers buddy.
