We will start by sketching a letter and digitising it. Then, we will add some letters, export a font, and test it in InDesign. In the afternoon, we will add more letters to the font, space them, optimise them for the screen, but also add diacritics, and produce compound glyphs. At the end of the day, you will have a pretty good start for your first font.
