125. So, You Want to Create a Font...

font.jpgOver at I Love Typography, they are posting a new series for those of you wanting to create your own font. It's just in it's initial stages, but based on the first installment it looks like it will be a fairly concise and user-friendly tutorial. (I have yet to try out FontForge, and would recommend FontLab Studio if you can swing it.) Most importantly, I highly recommend reading (more like using) the fantastic book, Designing Type before and during your process as well. Its focus is more on individual letter structures as opposed to combinations and process, but it's quite helpful nonetheless. Have fun.

    Now, wouldn't that be fun to have an own font that everyone can use! I would love to try one as typography is one of my interests. I will use the tools mentioned by you and hopefully will come up with something good.
