Hello everyone. Just wanted to take a quick survey of sorts:
1) How many of you design your type from scratch in Illustrator (no scanned images, just pure composition inside the program)?
2) How many of you draft the glyphs first by hand, then edit that draft in Illustrator?
3) Do any of you use Illustrator (or any comparable program) simply to get the image in EPS format so you can do the majority of aesthetic work in FontLab?
It seems like more of #3 should be happening than what I suspect actually is--and it's a wonder, because FontLab has some really great glyph-construction tools (I don't mean to sound like I work for FontLab, no offense to those who do).
Oh, and why do you feel that your method is best?
