I've been in and out of typography for already 10 years. It all seems like a cycle. The general "I miss designing types" to the "this takes so much time without a profit at all".
As a developer I'm used to concepts on the programming world like MVP and setup something to explore what the public wants and if it makes to shift ideas or whatever.
Anyway, I was thinking, what if this was to be applied to the type design? Would it make sense? Would it work? To have some appreciation going, something flowing in seems to be a good motivation point to keep doing it and not get frustrated with it.
I imagine something like, we as designers design 5 or 6 characters and possible users being able to request a set of glyphs or something like in those lines.
What do you think?
