Some background on me, so you can estimate how much or little authority I have: My native language (German) uses diacritics (ÄÖÜäöü) as well as non-diacritical special characters (ß) and is in the process of introducing or rejecting a new special character (ẞ, the capital eszett) right now. I did some research on the diacritical characters myself for the ...

Looks a lot like Daniel Bold to me. On second look, I'm almost sure it is.

Unicode Characters are chosen by those that are submitted to the Unicode Technical Committee. Usually the submissions are characters that are already being used. Most of the cat characters that exist now were emoji characters, used by many japanese phone carriers before being included in unicode.

Oh, there are ways. Here are some options in order asc from shitty and easy, to less shitty and hard.

This is of course due to the bug of the ...

Can't say it's perfect, as the "S" and "C" are slightly different... but otherwise, Avenir Next is verrrrrry close. Top is Avenir Next Medium, bottom is Avenir Next Bold.

Prasanth, as far as I can see you have found the only place to buy the font (MyFonts.com, a great resource, does not list it). On the fonts.com website it is available – as you stated - only in post-script format. The font seems to be from 1997 (you can find it at the identifont-website) so maybe they (Monotype/Linotype originally) did not put out any other ...

Some of your question is better directed to a legal professional as all license/legal questions require legal opinions (and thus they are not a good question for the Graphic Design StackExchange). The most practical means of meeting the CC-Attribution-No Derivatives requirements is to provide a noticeable area in your work that attributes the creator of ...

Here's what you should do: Scan your work, one glyph per file - from here on the instructions are for each glyph separately. Very important for making fonts - ach glyph is a file of it's own Open them in illustrator and convert your glyph to an svg, either by using live trace or tracing it manually (recommended) Notice that the glyphs must be a ...
