Tips On Creating A Font?

over 4 years ago from

I'm working on a side project and as part of my project, I want to create create everything about the product experience from the ground up. One of the first things I started working on was a custom font for the project and I realized 2 things.

  1. I have no idea what I'm doing
  2. This is extremely complicated

With that being said, I want to know if there are any resources to help with font creation. Resources that would be helpful include information on character spacing, setting proper character weights, and which letters help anchor a font. Any tips, tricks, guides, videos, and tutorials are welcome.
