    You should do something to the letter spacing. First get you bearings right and then start thinking about kerning.
    Just look at the 'lic', brrrrr ...

    ugh, i totally would, but this is a student project that we had to make live by a certain time, and I couldnt figure out the software on how to deal with the kerning.

    You started the font as a symbol. That's why all right bearings are fixed. Not complicated to fix though, it is a 2 clicks job. Use auto metrics and set the left bearing at zero and the right bearing at 90.
    If you want to further improve you can change the right bearing for the 'r' manually, I suggest somewhere in between 50 and 60 and add kerning for k and x with c, e, o and s.

    Nice thingie, bit of cleaning in the horizontal and vertical lines and you're done.
