I want to learn FontLab, so today I began designing my own font (which at the same time is a tribute to my girlfriend). The font is based on my own handwriting.
For you babe :)
Since I’m more comfortable with the Pen Tool in Illustrator, I decided to draw the letters (glyphs) there, and then paste them into FontLab afterwards. That works pretty well. I spent some time prepping my Illustrator document, to make the copy/paste into FontLab as smooth as possible. I found this link during my research.
I’ll post some more “behind the scenes” when I’ve made more letters (glyphs). Stay tuned people :)
