"Concept to Completion" Webinar

Nov 2013: Joe Treacy will give our Decem­ber webi­nar “The Fevered Brow of a Type Designer: Font Design from Con­cept to Com­ple­tion”.

   In this webi­nar  (Tues­day, 3 Decem­ber at 11:00CST) Joe will take us through the steps of design­ing a font from begin­ning to end. He will describe the tasks of cre­at­ing glyphs and build­ing a type­face from a parts library. He’ll share his unique approach to set­ting the met­rics for a font and make some sug­ges­tions on the final prod­uct tar­get in var­i­ous font for­mats.
If you ever wanted to get the ben­e­fit of expe­ri­ence (with­out actu­ally hav­ing to go through the expe­ri­ence) this is your oppor­tu­nity to look over the shoul­der of a sea­soned pro and see how the total font design process works. Joe’s pre­sen­ta­tion will give you the inside scoop on what it’s really like to pre­pare a com­mer­cial font from scratch.
    There is a small fee (US$24.99) for this webi­nar and we are lim­ited in the num­ber of places, so sign up early by click­ing here.
