      You think? I'm certainly not claiming to be an expert, and the article should make abundantly clear that I'm a first timer, and I'm referencing the work a lot of people who are themselves regarded as experts. It's only an overview based on my personal experience not "the definitive guide to type design" – I just thought it was worth sharing what I learnt.

        It's worth and it's good for you, but I think the title is an oxymoron, although it may be subjective.

          it literally says it's their thoughts.

          Instead of making a hot take it would have been nice to approach it as "hey i got through this the first time and here are my thoughts on what I did to get here and how I can do it better in the future, an how someone with no experience can start" vs " I'm the master of all things type hear me roar" which isn't at ALL something i got from the title or the article it self which actually has references to other places with advice and help.

          Its not subjective, it's clear he's a beginner by stating, and I quote, "After releasing my first typeface..." (emphasis mine). The rest, "...I wrote my thoughts..." hints at describing some of the issues another beginner might run across should they go down the same path. How you got from this title that this would be some sort of doctoral dissertation on type design is quite the mystery.
