How to make a font – intro
Hi there! I promised to show you how to make your own font. Here’s my first post of what I intend to be a series of different ways to make a font. For this tutorial you only need the Illustrator software and a plugin for Illustrator that I will talk about later. This is by far the quickest method I tried with nice results!
If you have a love for lettering and letters in general you probably have thought about designing your own font already. Maybe you’re like me and have pages upon pages full of alphabets you thought up and maybe even use for your projects!
How cool would it be, if you have your own shop selling printables for example, to use your own fonts! You can then make your printables truly unique to your shop! Or maybe you’re a graphic designer who would like to start selling fonts as well!
These OTF fonts are definitely sellable. You can not yet make lots of extra font options but a little birdie told me that the plugin will eventually support that as well. At the moment of writing this I received an email that the kerning beta is live.
