Calligraphers, letterers, illustrators, or designers who want to create a typeface from their work, anyone interested in creating a custom typeface for a brand, campaign, or company
Have you ever wanted to create a typeface, but didn’t know where to start? The daunting task of finding and learning a type design application can often discourage designers from jumping in. This session will be all about breaking down those technical walls by learning the ins-and-outs of Glyphs. In no way is type design easy, but you’ll be able to walk out the door knowing how to create your own typeface. Note: It’s highly recommended you bring a MacBook to the session. Glyphs is only available for Mac, so unfortunately Windows and other users won’t be able to use the application. If you don’t have a Mac, you’re welcome to get a seat and watch as Mattox’s screen will be projected.
