Font Diner Eau Claire Font Making Workshop

Sat, Jul 15, 2017 - Sun, Jul 16, 2017
Eau Claire, Wisconsin

This intensive two day workshop is perfect for designers who want to learn how to make their very first font! You’ll bring a photographic reference for an all caps font you want to create and the first day will be totally focused on vector letter tracing/drawing basics. On day two, we’ll switch gears and spend the day importing your letters, spacing, kerning and generating your first font!

You’ll leave with a strong foundation how to develop your own typefaces and how to expand on the font you’ve created at this workshop to use as you wish!

This is a two-day workshop and participants must be prepared to attend both days. All participants must provide their own Macintosh laptop computer and must be proficient with either Adobe Illustrator or Inkscape which will need be installed on your laptop prior to the workshop. As part of your registration, you’ll also receive a trial version of the Glyphs font making application which you will install just prior to the workshop.
