I'm not sure how active this mailing list is these days. However, if you like you are welcome to start with the font I created "Raga", as that was intended to have a modern sans-serif look, somewhat akin to Times New Roman.

I'm neither an artist nor a typographer, so you may find the font rather simplistic and not very well encoded...but there are plenty of glyphs to start with and, IMHO, they look OK. The point is that you are free to apply your time and skill to it and make something of it. I'm not able to offer much more than a friendly wave in support. I think I used to use a tool now called FontForge to maintain it, but I have no idea if the tool and my file are still compatible. I've attached the .sfd source file, the original copyright "juktakkhor.txt" and the last .otf file I generated.

Enjoy. Do let me know if you make anything of it (and feel to give credit!).

Thanks, Shaheed

Thank you for this amazing project. I am a 3D Artist + illustrator and would love to create a free Bangla font, modern and optimized for both printing and electronic media. I want to join the volunteer for developing Bangla typeface.

It will be great if you have a guideline. or instruction steps that I can follow. I am a long time Adobe illustrator user. I know a little about the process how to create English fonts with fontforge but I assume it will be a different process for Bangla font.

I really want to make something good. that people will love to use. A new Bangla font that is beautiful and sleek (Sans Serif possibly). It will be absolutely wonderful if you can let me know how can I contribute in free Bangla font project. How to get my design from illustrator to a usable open type font. and also it will be great if it works with Avro as well since lot of people seem to be using it these days.

Thank you for your time and attention
