A "Font Production" room?

Hi! I can't find a room dedicated to font production at TypeDrawers. Since the "Build" room at Typophile has always been a very valuable resource for a lot of people, can a similar space be created here?
Thanks in advance.


  • There is always the "Critiques" forum!

    Is there some reason that font production discussions cannot go in the “Software” section?

    I would think Technique and Theory, as it seems like a "technique" topic.
  • Well, it is not the same. What about kerning lists and methods? Or design standards for foreign diacritics? Or encoding policies? Or glyph naming issues? Or production workflows? Or font format specifications? This technicalities deserve a special section that is different than the one used for exchanging experiences about font software.
  • "Technique and Theory" is a sub section of "Lettering and calligraphy". I don't think 'font production' would fit.

    It's also a subsection of "Typeface Design".
  • @Mark, Oh, you are right. Huummmm... I still don't know but maybe I'm being a bit stubborn :).
  • Maybe you are. I think the title of the discussion will bring the appropriate responses.
  • Ok, that will be the place of my future technical questions. Deal.

    Let’s just keep production in the “Technique and Theory” and “Software” categories for now. If a large volume of production posts start to appear I will add a category later.
  • Less categories, please. I'm already confused.
