Making a Handwritten/Script Font Process?

Hello guys,

How do you go on making your own script/handwritten fonts? What tools do you usually use? Apart from Glyphs App? Do you use technology such as an iPad Pro or just a piece of paper and a pen then go on image tracing on Illustrator then import your work to the app?

I would love to hear your thoughts on how you guys work on your scripts!

FWIW, I wrote a lengthy article about the creation process of my typeface, FF Uberhand. It was some years ago, when I worked in FontLab, but it could be done basically the same way in Glyphs, for example using my Scrawl plugin to draw directly in the app.

Haven’t tried it myself, but Letterink plugin looks useful for script fonts.
