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!
