New to Typophile? Accounts are free, and easy to set up.
I'm in process of designing and redesigning glyphs but need some advices how to do spacing and kerning properly on non-serif font? Where in a font are a lot of letters "same width".
What are test words, texts of you experienced technical fonts designers for spacing and kerning?
How to do easiest spacing and kerning on my font in Font Lab Studio?
Using classes? But what classes and letters actually in my font(look picture)?
I tried auto kerning and I don't like results. I tried Optical metrics feature in Adobe programs and also not liked result. I want to do kerning properly and won't hesitate to do it manually, pair by pair. But how? From where to start? I tried by myself to do it but I see that moving some values in one part may make problem "in other part" of the font. So I can circle in that forever.
Briem guide is for serif fonts I think, so Briem not helping here in my case.
Help me to make it right...
