I'm currently trying to construct two very unusual glyphs to go with the Minion font family.
The first is the IPA character for the sound j as in "les jeux sont faits", sometimes called "ezh", Unicode 0292. Unfortunately, I haven't found a suitable example. The glyph looks like the top of the z glyph combined with the bottom of the numeral 3.
The second is the character "hv" used in Gothic transliteration. It looks like a combination of the h and u glyphs but without the lower right foot/serif of the u. Unicode scalar value is 0195, plus I've attached my first feeble attempt at creating one.
Unfortunately, I have no experience at all in designing type.
Are there any language/letterform aficionados who have dealt with these characters and who have two minutes to drop a comment?
