I am mainly interested in questions about fonts and font design since I develop a font editor.

comment How to correctly using potrace (CLI) to trace bitmap
I had as just as Aizan Fahri some trouble generating a sharp image with potrace. Can you provide example settings for a good balance between smooth curves and preserved details with potrace?

I use Inkscape for GUI mockups but there are probably better options.

comment When designing, what techniques can be used for determining if the right amount of “fluff” has been added?
Sorry that was a bad joke, I can not solve exactly much fluff you should add or quantify how modernistic a design should be but I want to add to the discussion that fluffy design and non fluffy design is connected to functionalism.

comment From optical to manual kerning (critique)
Beginning with the RL is actually even better since it limits how small the distance can be, it must be very small at the bottom and bigger at the top because of the leg. I would give all letters as much space as the RL combinations has at the top. But as you state in the question the optical kerning looks pretty good.
