I am taking a regular version of a typeface I love and making a light version of it, and I'm wondering:
Is the light version just an inset of the regular version?
Are there any special considerations I am missing?
This is my first albeit tenuous foray into type design, and while I have experience with and appreciate good typography, I have never actually got my hands dirty in making or altering a type face.
Extra credit question: Am I using the terms correctly here? I understand typeface is the term for the design of type but at what point should I be using the term font?
