I am quite new to the process of creating a font so please bear with the supreme beginner-like questions about to be asked. I have 2 core issues, one of which pertains to display resolution and rendering (and the specs needed to build the font to the appropriate scale):
Glyph definition in relation to unicode standards
Pixel perfect glyphs for certain pixel scales
I am looking for sources and suggestions on creating a font consisting custom icons. It will be for an e-commerce web site. Approx. 30, site specific artworks have to be drawn and executed as a webfont. The icon webfont seems a clear solution for the developers who think to use the full advantage of a leaner CSS.
I am using Fontforge since I have started to draw my own projects with it. But I just can't make any sense on the baseline for artworks. The glyph proportions and icon proportions seem to differ greatly.
Any suggestions or threads directing me to a solution are highly appreciated!
I'm developing a suite of icons for use by an organisation. The majority are generic symbols from public domain or developed by me, while others are TM logos or symbols such as word, powerpoint, PDF logo, Facebook etc. It's these kinds of proprietary symbols that have me scratching my head.
Any advice from someone who has been through a similar situation? I would normally seek permission from the company, but I'm unsure about even the language or terms I should use or whether I would run into a brick wall etc. I'm tempted to develop a suite of generic symbols which try and represent these icons without reproducing them but that seems a little counter-intuative or something.
Any help would be well appreciated. Thanks for reading.
