Handwriting to Typeface Using Calligrphr

Handwriting to Typeface Using Calligrphr - student project

I am doing this class project in May 2022.

A lot of things have changed since the class began! ScriptFont has changed to Calligraphr and it's now run on a "freemium" model, where you get 75 characters free but have to pay if you want more characters, especially ligatures. 

I had trouble figuring out Calligraphr since this class is about a whole different system, but I figured it out, using another youtube tutorial when I got stuck.

 

Here is my first attempt:

And here is my second attempt, that I named after myself, because it does resemble my handwriting a lot!

Thanks for a great class, Christine! This is a fascinating topic-- and I might end up paying for Calligraphr's premium services, because it's not a very high charge and ligatures are probably worth it!
