Maku 2.75 by Zsantz Maku 2.75 by Zsantz
Never let it be said that I don't take suggestions, comments, critiques and consider them. I do. So I started by modifying the r,s,v, & w of Maku. That led me to change the M, S, V, and W. I followed this up with changing the d, g, p, and q. And then I changed the Y, and why not? So here you have it, Maku 2. Enjoy, oh, and I kept the older version of Maku, just in case.

The longer descenders are definitely an improvement. The /Y takes getting used to but I quite like it. The W not so much.

The condensed /m has a much better rhythm and the /r looks more beautiful. Kerning pairs seem more necessary now though because of the big space on the right side of /r.

As for /s and /v, I'm not quite sure what you were trying to pull off. Both letters are too light now, particularly /s. The high contrast doesn't go well with the other letters. I see you also have a high contrast in letters like /b, but it's much more concentrated there. The shape of /s is improved but for the contrast I would switch back to the previous version. As for /v, I think you might have to make the top right side bolder and only let it get smaller near the apex.

Well, the W is a work in process, I went through three versions. And I'm still working on the Ses. The W for now is a variation on the V, but I thought of flipping and modifying the M into the W.
