Ever wanted to create your own typeface, but you’re not exactly sure where to start? Creative Bloq helps you design your own typeface in eighteen steps. Some tips include figuring out some choices you have to make first: do you want sans serif or serif typeface? How will it look in long documents versus larger font? Also, don’t be afraid to “use your hands.” Draw it out before making it more precise digitally. That way you can see exactly what you want it to look like before it’s on the screen. The article also gives tips on what software to use and why it’s not just about the letters “A-Z.”
