Kirjak 6

In this introduction to Latin type design, attendees will learn how to start their first font in glyphs. First we will sketch and digitise a lowercase n, then proceed to draw a few letters more.

You will also learn how to reuse the shapes you have already drawn for creating diacritic letters, and how to create an alternate letter variant.

No prior experience in type design necessary.
