This is part 1 of a continuing series I’ll be producing about how to use Fontlab Studio to create fonts, from start to finish. It’s been a challenge to learn Fontlab because it’s a very robust software, so I’m passing along everything I learn, as I learn it to help those interested in making their own fonts.
