Designing type
0

I’m new here and had a question about designing type. First off, I’m an artist and designer. I like to create/design every aspect of my projects and I’ve now gotten into type design. My question is: what are some basics I should keep in mind when designing type? For example, as far as I know, you are supposed to start with certain letters and then design the rest of the alphabet? Anyway, any suggestions will be very helpful! Thanks!

For broad principles and approaches, you could do a lot worse than Briem’s web site:
