About This Class

Have you ever wanted to create your very own font, but feel overwhelmed by the process and not knowing where to start? Maybe you don't have the money to spend on the computer programs needed or the time to invest in learning how they work, let alone the aspects of font building itself.

I'm pleased to bring you a class of modern technology at its finest and easiest: You will now be able to create a complete font using nothing but your iPad and a $5 app. Keep the hundreds of dollars you would have spent on computer programs and treat yourself to a fancy dinner once your font takes off as the new "must have" blogger font, or the go-to font for flyers, or when a big company adopts it as a part of their branding!

This class covers what you'll need to begin, basic anatomy of typeface, followed by a guided walk through to introduce you to an easy software (app) that you will build your font on. You'll then see how easy it is to export it and download it to your desktop to begin typing right away!

Creativity can really unleash as you learn how to manipulate letters to give off a certain impression. Dive into this class prepared to learn, because in no time flat, you'll be whipping out fonts like you wouldn't believe. 

Side note- It's SO MUCH EASIER to create a font with the Apple Pencil than with a computer mouse or trackpad. Like Whoa. Can't wait to see you in the class!

A natural teacher! Excellent directions. Can't wait to use what I've learned.
Highly recommend this class! Do you constantly run into the issue where you want your font to be consistent from project/post to project/post? I do. Genuinely - my 'a's and 'e's and even 's's are never the same - but this just solves it all!!! Yes you could argue but that's the beauty of your handwriting but to have a clean clear version of it where it is all consistent - has always been THE dream!! & Peggy helps you fulfill that in this class. Explains it all - shows you how and encourages you to create your own. Genius!! Thank you Peggy!

Peggy Dean

The Pigeon Letters | Lettering & Illustration

I'm Peggy. I'm native to the Pacific Northwest and I love all things creative. From a young age I was dipping everything I could into the arts. I've dabbled in quite an abundance of varieties, such as ballet, fire dancing, crafting, graphic design, traditional calligraphy, hand lettering, painting with acrylics and watercolors, illustrating, creative writing, jazz, you name it. If it's something involving being artistic, I've probably cycled through it a time or two (or 700). 

Today, I'm known prominently for hand lettering and my unique line illustrations. I'm thrilled to be sharing them with you!
