I've been in love with type since forever. Like a girl I don't have the courage to walk up to and explain my feeling for. Now, I finally did it, and it wasn't that scary at all.
Anyway, I wanted to do a style that I like and draw a lot, not just my regular handwriting. So, it ended up like the one below. I guess it's inspired by the punk scene an hand made posters. Always music.

I took a RAW-format picture with my camera at 35 mm so there would be as little distrotion possible.

Then I just edited it in the RAW-editor in photoshop and just hade to tweak a little bit in the end before inserting it to illustrator.

Making it ready for the Glyphs app.. Since I'm from Scandinavia I'm including a couple of more letters in the alphabet.

Now we are getting somewhere. The Kerning was a little bit tricky since i made an bold/italic styled font and I think i started kerning them individually to soon. It's time for sleep now, but next week the font will be ready for use. I'm a bit satisfied. I'm also going to rename it.. Seven Sans sucks. Bye for now.

The last step. The individual kerning. It was acctually quite fun even if its a neverending story.

Soon the typeface will be ready. I had to add all the small things because I always get mad when I've found a nice font and there is no "(" or """ or "!". So the last step to add the rest of the small things..
