New to Typophile? Accounts are free, and easy to set up.
Im looking for some pointers and rules to start working with a light and bold weight of a regular I have made. (My typography is a geometric sans serif like Futura and Avant Garde)
– Is there a special set of proportions between horizontal and vertical lines, when making a thinner and bolder weight? Thinking about thickness and width
– What about the spacing and kerning – Does it change?
– Whats the experince with making a general 'action' in fontlab, where You make all the letters thinner or bolder, and then afterwards creating the necessary adjustments?
The questions might seem a little naive, but i need to be a 100% sure about what I'm doing.
Any entries on the subject will be gladly appreciated.
Thank You very much,
