Prerequisites

We will start by sketching a letter and digitising it. Then, we will add some letters, export a font, and test it in InDesign. In the afternoon, we will add more letters to the font, space them, optimise them for the screen, but also add diacritics, and produce compound glyphs. At the end of the day, you will have a pretty good start for your first font.

In this fun workshop, we will create a pixel font in Glyphs, and with a trick, generate a whole font family from it, each with a different pixel shape. If you are quick, you can have a complete font at the end.
