About This Class

In this class you will learn how to create a handwritten font digitally. This is a follow up to “Create a Handwritten Font: a beginners guide.”  Instead of using paper and pen, you learn to edit the character template directly with whatever software you have on hand. Software options include Procreate, Illustrator, Photoshop, Gimp or anything that allows you to edit a JPG or PDF. 


Upon completion, you will have a font file ready to install on your computer, to distribute to friends or to sell online.
