Learn how to create Color Fonts in 3 different formats: CPAL, SVG and sbix. Together, we will make a few color letters, export them in various formats, and find out which formats are supported by which apps and browsers. Plus: learn how to add your selfie 🤳 to a font.

If time permits, we will add a simple animation to the Color font, and animate it in a web browser.
