I'm early(ish) in the process of designing a font, and need some advice.
All the vertical terminals (excluding top/bottom of stems) end with a cut at a specific angle. This is consistent throughout the font. The only place this doesn't seem to work is in the lower case 'a' and 'e':
I'm not sure why but the 'a' and 'e' here just don't feel right. It feels a bit unnatural and awkward. If I flip the angle of the cut, it - in my opinion - looks a lot better. It looks more natural and flows easier:
My only problem with this is my near OCD-like need for consistency. The angled terminals are now consistent across the entire font except for 2 lower case letters! So...
Am I missing something obvious with the lower case 'a' & 'e' that will make the angled terminals work the way i want?
Is my solution ok (and the problem is just that strangely over-rational corner of my brain), or is there a better solution?
