I’ve finally gotten my practical font design video course up online and available for you. This is just practical stuff without any fancy theory or stuffy rules. This is just basic procedures to make a font with minimal effort.
I let you watch as I design several fonts. I provide sample fonts. My goal is to help you get some fonts produced so that you can make your own designs with confidence. You’ll find many of my opinions, but no design stipulations—other than an idea of what works and what does not.
I’ve published my practical font design video course!
Here’s a recent review [October 2017]: “..finally a course that gives you the practical nitty-gritty of digital font design procedures in the real world. I haven’t found this information anywhere else. Brilliant value. It is very much like being a fly-on-the-wall. Exactly what I was looking for. Thank you so much!”
Interestingly enough, I discovered that I am using a better, more efficient production method than I was in the book. There will probably be no new book in the future as FontLab is moving to a new version. But this course is the best I have to offer at this point. I’m not sure what my new software will be—but I’ll let you know here in The Skilled Workman.
Here is what it offers:
- A special copy of Practical Font Design, 3rd Edition Plus in PDF form [normally $10]
- A sample font to get you started in your font design endeavors
- 24 lectures with over 5 hours of focused instruction
As usual, this is a one-man shop and I have endeavored to make the course an extension of the book. If you find issues, please let me know so I can fix them. I will give you a mention for your finds.
