Definitely not a Type Designer

By On 05:10

Okay, it's been a rough couple weeks. I took my preliminary sketches (see older post) and tried to translate the design into a fontstruct. No Go.

So back at the drawing board, I created the individual letter forms in Illustrator. I got less of the 'instant gratification' and more of the' appreciation for what type designers do'. So after a grueling mess of hours in front of the Mac, I have a few letters to show for it.

The assignment is basically done, until my final revision, and I'm reading tutorials throughout the weekend. Go higher education!

My favorite designer blog, Bittbox.com, has a tutorial using FontLab Studio and an fun typeface created by its readers (conglomerfont).
