This intensive two day workshop is perfect for designers who want to learn how to make their very first font! You’ll bring a photographic reference for an all caps font you want to create and the first day will be totally focused on vector letter tracing/drawing basics. On day two, we’ll switch gears and spend the day importing your letters, spacing, kerning and generating your first font!

You’ll leave with a strong foundation how to develop your own typefaces and how to expand on the font you’ve created at this workshop to use as you wish!
