I am a graphic design student currently developing my own original font. I exclusively use adobe products for all of my work for school and professionally. I finished the rough of my typeface and thought it would be incredible to make my typeface completley active. Possible having my font featured on adobe fonts for use and purchase. How would I go about having my font developed so that other designers can use my original typeface?

Glad you are enjoying font design, it’s fascinating. To make a font from your design you need to use a font editor. No Adobe product will do this. It is very specialist and requires lots of detailed knowledge of crucial font internals such as hinting, as well as the slog of designing the hundreds of characters, other than letters, needed in a font. However Adobe Fonts seems not to have a showcase function, and licenses from established foundries; they have hundreds of thousands of professional fonts to choose from. Make a success of your font business and after a few years Adobe may be interested.

I've alreaady have all of my characters created, I have some experience with the designing. I'm working on my third degree and wanted to see if I could make some active fonts as a challenge for my growth as a designer. I needed to know where I could take it to make mine active. Thanks for your help!
