After I generate a font in Fontographer the curves don't look so smooth anymore. I was wondering if any of you had a similar problem. The curves look all nice and smooth when i drew them. I first drew them in Illustrator and then import them in Fontographer where they also look nice. They don't look so nice after I generate the font and I zoom in, the fine details I mean.

Thank you

Hey guys I've been working on this custom lettering project. What do you guys think? Is the composition balanced? Is this too busy? Your suggestions & constructive criticism would be much appreciated!

It's inspired by this quote... "Wealth is of the heart and mind, not the pocket" by Pharrell.

Are the Bezier curves found in expanded glyphs the same curves used to create the font files? more points or less points?

At some point I learned about trying to make strictly horizontal and vertical handles with my beziers, wherever possible. And I avoid unnecessary points... e.g. a perfect circle ought to be four points.

When I open other people's fonts, particularly scripts, the curves look so perfect. Like someone took a circle or ellipse and then chopped it half (or wherever). Or maybe did the equivalent of drawing a stroke in illustrator and outlining it.
