If by "web safe" you mean common on all platforms, then No. It is not. You will have to use @font-face with a web and/or app license.

Visually, it's cute. Nice work on that. Structurally, it's lacking. When you have to explain what to click on to navigate the site, the navigation is broken. Asking a user to read that they need to click on an image of a balloon to actually get to the content of your site (the portfolio) is not intuitive. I'd also rethink calling yourself 'crazy'. :)

One thing I noticed is your use of punctuations. You may use them as you like in informal situations, but if we're talking about professional typography, you need to remember these rules: Any punctuation mark only appears one at a time.

Present them in place on pages, stationary, and elsewhere they would use the logo so they see how jarring it can be to have several typefaces in front of the user at once. You should do this seriously, ...

In typograph, an "em" unit is the maximum height of a set of characters. For latin text, that means the height from the accent on top of capital letters to the bottom of descending lowercase letters. E.g, it would be the total height of Ég. The "em" value is what you set when you define the font size -- if you set the font to be 24pt, then ...

Well, here is one way to do it. Not that I'd probably recommend...but it does get the descender out of the way. But more seriously, one thing you might try is flushing the text right, tightening up the leading, and throwing a vertical rule next to the text. Depending on how the rest of the elements around this look, it might work... By the way, what is ...
