1) draw by hand some glyphs, so you have an objective piece of paper of what
you want
2) search on Internet for a font that looks like  what you (think) to want
3) starting from this font,  make some modifications of glyphs that you have
with fontforge or metapost
With fontforge, you can even make countours from  images  , and with a bit
of hack from MetaFont too.
