Inspired by your own handwriting (or a lettering style you love!), in this beginner-friendly online class, you'll learn how to design your very own font. And don’t worry! You don't need to be a graphic designer to make this work. By using a few applications, you'll learn how to upload, trace and design a custom typeface to use on your computer. How cool is that? Plus, your instructor, Isabel, will be there every step of the way.
By the end of her class, you’ll have a custom font to typeset everything, including custom prints, mugs, desktop wallpapers and more!
BY THE END OF THIS CLASS, YOU’LL LEARN:
- Upload your personal hand-drawn alphabet into a font editor app
- Live trace and space your character set to get your font just right
- Save an OTF file properly and use it to typeset everything in your own font
