There are a lot of great parts about creating a typeface, but one of the best parts? Finding the name. The first eight I came up with are already being used, but that’s okay, because #9 is perfect.
In my ongoing efforts to teach myself the art of fontmaking, I’ve created this bunch of weirdness directly in Type 3.2, using only its pen tool (all of my other recent fonts have been imported from Illustrator or Photoshop).
I did double-letter ligatures for 15 letters, both in lowercase and caps. (Most of them are the same character, just offset, instead of creating a second version of that letter. What can I say, I like to turn these freebies around in a day or two!)
