Take your lettering and custom type and turn it into a working font using Glyphs App

Hot on the heels of our Creative Works One-Day Seattle Keynote, we’ll be in Seattle Friday, May 10th, for a crash course on the process of taking a piece of lettering (any custom characters that you’ve made (be it vector shapes in Adobe Illustrator, your own handwriting written in a notebook, or a lettering piece you sketched in your Field Notes) and make it into a working font! Fonts are a great way to make passive income. Or, perhaps as a calligrapher or a designer with a trademark handwriting style, a font is a great way to streamline your process and make layout a breeze. You’ll leave our 2.5 hour class understanding the basics of building a font, and having created at least 4 letters. There will be in class time to work through key letters, and Jen and Amy will be walking around giving personal assistance to each student. 

Things we’ll cover:

  • Intro to the Glyphs App Interface
  • Terminology
  • How to Correctly Set Up A Font File
  • Organization and Version History
  • Streamlining Your Process by Starting with Key Characters.
  • Cheats to Make Consistency A Breeze
  • Exporting
  • Kerning and Leading Tips
  • ****NOTE!! This class uses Glyphs app to build fonts, an app only available for Mac users right now. We’re hoping they’ll release a PC version soon!****

Note: Feel free to bring your own snacks or water, but we will provide food and drinks as well.

** Cancellations must be made 72 hours prior to workshop for refund.
