Create your very own hand-drawn font
Welcome to Hand-Drawn Typography 101. This course is designed for anyone interested in learning how to make their own hand-drawn font. Even if you've uttered the famous words; "I can't draw", this course is for you. We will cover the most basic fundamentals of drawing and then learn how to use those skills to make more complex shapes and figures with an emphasis on making hand-drawn typography.
In this class we will explore the basic foundations of what a font is, and more importantly how do we begin to make our own.

We will also talk about what the different styles of fonts are.
