After converting PF Beau Sans (by Parachute) to outlines in Illustrator CS3, I noticed that it's forms are made up of very many points. Especially the V looks like it could be made with a lot less.
I'm not a font designer, but isn't there a point to using as few points as possible in the design of a font?
And is this an example of using too many points, or is there a reason for doing it this way?
I'm now assuming that converting the font to outlines in illustrator will give approximatley the same points as those in the original design. Please correct me on this if I'm mistaken.
