The first typeface in this year is Anklada Novaz. It's a stencil and so improved version of the original Anklada look. Novaz is inspired in stencil typefaces and it reminds the impressed texts in some wood/metallic boxes.
Available in original and diagonal styles. Coming soon in DaFont.

Yeah. I have done Anklada almost two yeas ago, but I was thinking to make a new one version of it, because it has been my most downloaded typeface ever. And I thought in that stencil effect because I wanted making one someday. I just broke some rules designing the stencil effect, as you can see. XD
I like the diagonal cut on a/d but I think you're a bit too inconsistent in applying that diagonal cut. For example, I think it has no place on /n (well, you can for a diagonal cut if it points in the opposite direction) and on many of the capital letters. I personally wouldn't apply a diagonal cut to the ascenders, but if you do you should indeed apply it to all ascenders including b/d. I actually think you should use a/b/d/g/p/q/r like they are now and base the other letters on these.
As for the stencil effect, I like it, but aren't some of the cuts on illogical places? If it is, I don't think it's necessary to change though. It looks quite nice. My only objection is the horizontal cut on /o, which makes it look like a Pokémon ball.
The main orange letters look quite perfect, by the way.
Thanks a lot. Well, I have done some "breaking rules" doing the stencil, that's why I did that horizontal cut in /o. Ah, no matter if it seems like a pokéball, I don't care. I didn't want making the same stencil as in other typefaces, you know. And I did those diagonal cuts in some characters such as in the original Anklada's version, like a basis. I wanted maintaining that style because this remake is an improved version, and because the first version has seen downloaded more than my other fonts. (Even you must know the first one wasn't very well done, not like pro quality. XD)
