Font Seed Font Making Workshop

  • Event
  • Chicago

This intensive two day workshop is perfect for designers who want to learn how to make their very first font. Isn’t making fonts hard you ask? Well, do you know Adobe Illustrator? If the answer is yes, then we can teach you how to develop your own custom fonts for clients or your own projects as you expand your design skills by seeing fonts in a totally new way once you’ve created your own.

Participants receive an extended trial license and can purchase their own full license at a discount.

Font Seed and Font Diner Workshops

Day one: 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!
