Hi, I'm new to type design and I feel the need for a process/plan to be more productive.
I don't make much daily progress as I find myself just keep perfecting small things rather than aiming for the finish line.
Also I'm not sure what's my finish line, goals or milestones.
The part I'm struggled with are punctuation, symbols, accented glyph, and italics.
Here's how I work currently:
- Lowercase and uppercase in Regular weight
- Spacing and basic kerning with classes for common pairs
- Create thin weight master, then interpolate for black master
- Punctuation and numbers
- Diacritics marks and accented glyph
- More glyphs
What's your process/plan to be productive and get a typeface to finish?
What should be done on daily basis?
The finish might be in steps like version 0.1, 0.2 etc.
I think it's better to release smaller and frequent like those in Future Fonts.
