Principles of Typeface Design: Learn How to Make Custom Fonts
8 x Thursday evenings 6-9pm, commencing Thurs 14 September
This course is for anyone who wants to design their own typeface. You’ll learn the primary techniques and tools required to produce a working font. Both beginners and experienced designers are welcome, but a working knowledge of Adobe Illustrator is essential. Professional type designer Wayne Thompson will start you with hand-drawing letter shapes, and will end with constructing a working typeface using font-editing software.
Requirements: bring your laptop (Mac or PC) with Adobe Illustrator installed and active.
Type designer Wayne Thompson has a national profile; he has produced typefaces for clients including the ABC, Holden, Animal Logic and Officeworks. Check out his work at Australian Type Foundry.
