Jabana & Jabana Alt & Jabana Extras — 52 fonts for coffee and more
In 2014 Jabana was released as just a single font. One year later, after some hard work Nils Thomsen rounded it up to a very useful and complex typeface system. Inspired by having a “Schorle” at Hamburgs bars. Super compressed to extended letter shapes in 5 widths and 4 weights – smooth handwritten marker curves and especially a wide range of opentype features define the large character set of Jabana.
Each letter and punctuation got three simple varieties of alternates. This gives a nice looking handwritten nature to the font. They will be randomly chosen by the contextual alternates feature or even by hand via stylistic set (ss01, ss02).
I am quite new to the process of creating a font so please bear with the supreme beginner-like questions about to be asked. I have 2 core issues, one of which pertains to display resolution and rendering (and the specs needed to build the font to the appropriate scale):
Glyph definition in relation to unicode standards
Pixel perfect glyphs for certain pixel scales
I am looking for sources and suggestions on creating a font consisting custom icons. It will be for an e-commerce web site. Approx. 30, site specific artworks have to be drawn and executed as a webfont. The icon webfont seems a clear solution for the developers who think to use the full advantage of a leaner CSS.
I am using Fontforge since I have started to draw my own projects with it. But I just can't make any sense on the baseline for artworks. The glyph proportions and icon proportions seem to differ greatly.
Any suggestions or threads directing me to a solution are highly appreciated!
I'm developing a suite of icons for use by an organisation. The majority are generic symbols from public domain or developed by me, while others are TM logos or symbols such as word, powerpoint, PDF logo, Facebook etc. It's these kinds of proprietary symbols that have me scratching my head.
Any advice from someone who has been through a similar situation? I would normally seek permission from the company, but I'm unsure about even the language or terms I should use or whether I would run into a brick wall etc. I'm tempted to develop a suite of generic symbols which try and represent these icons without reproducing them but that seems a little counter-intuative or something.
Any help would be well appreciated. Thanks for reading.
