Does anyone else use twists
for designing glyphs with diagonals? It's something I gradually added to my font development over the years but I didn't pick it up from anyone else. It's something that naturally developed in an attempt to reduce distortion in blends, obliques and MM interpolation. It has the added benefit of allowing for quick adjustment of the slant without having to reposition the apices.
Of course, later on in the design process, I remove the overlaps and add ink/light traps if needed. Recently I saw a screenshot of someone else using this method. Is this a thing
