    Fontself

    Make your own fonts in Photoshop & Illustrator

    If you've already have Adobe Illustrator or Photoshop, Fontself is a good options. It outputs svg .otf, which behaves just like a normal .otf in programs that don't support svg .otf.

    I can definitly recommend glyphs! I had to create a custom font as a seminarwork at university and this tool was a gamechanger. There is a learningcurve but if you know the features it is a really great tool.

    It is a new app that came out last month, the interface is very simple and neat, it contains all the basic features. Coinbox basically updates every week which means it is a growing product that I can rely on. More importantly, coinbox team would like to know the opinions from the users and always put the users' needs on the top of the list.
