    Type Design

    It's Illustrator for build, FontLab for encoding.

    The problem is that the interface is horribly counterintuitive, especially for those weaned on Illustrator.

    Glyphs is more accommodating, but less powerful.

    If any wants to know more about: Fontlab softwares, Microsoft Volt, AFDKO, and other programs, there is a great forum: http://forum.fontlab.com/

    I´ve heard "Glyphs" is a good software but I don't know "Glyphs" because is mac only.

    Glyphs

    A note: I do think that Glyphs is by far the fastest and most intuitive if you intend to build letterforms in the fontmaking software.

    FontlabStudio; even if it's hard to get used to it.

    I also use FontLab Studio, but I'm keen to try Robofont and Glyphs when I can find the time. There seems to be a lot less available material/ tutorials/ info/ opinions, but I hope to get exposure through tdc/ cooper type events.

    Great suggestions here! I'm interested in font design, so I'm going to try out Fontlab Studio.

    FontLab TypeTool is more than adequate for smaller projects than Studio imo

    Last time I made a font, Fontlab was really the only game in town. Seems kinda weird that there's only , but the market is pretty tiny so it makes sense.
