I've got a job where I need to modify a font for the customer. The font is open-source and i have access to the .ttf files.
The thing I'm uncertain about is where to start the whole process. For the first sketch I gave them i just opened the .ttf file in Glyphs and converted it to a UFO, and from there i made the necessary modifications.
If their client likes the font I'm doing I will have to work with two masters, a regular and a bold, and then interpolate some weights in between.
But my gut feelings tells me this might be the wrong way to approach this job, maybe it's better to create a fresh UFO and then copy the kerning and glyphs to it, so that i get a clean file?
Has anyone else done a similar thing like this and would like to share the process so I can get an idea of how I'm suppose to do this "the correct way".
Any help and insight would be nice
