New to Typophile? Accounts are free, and easy to set up.
Perhaps the knowledgeable could verify my thinking.
I have a sketched vision for a new typeface. On paper it's quite 'plump', so I could easily start with a bold or black design in FontLab. It's my understanding (mainly from other threads) that to easily interpolate a family I should make a bold and a light. This design may well suit that. Is this an appreciable intention?
Until now I've not really been able to visualise things that aren't a medium/in-the-middle weight. Working from the outside in sounds a bit perverse!
Any thoughts warmly appreciated.
