Hello! and please, HELP!
I have recently decided to give up my profession in fashion design and manufacture to submit myself to my personal love of the handwritten word, and the lovingly made fonts by those who appreciate the art of handwriting. I do not really understand my attraction to typography and fonts...but I see beauty in what many people do and love to bear witness to fonts that people labor over for days and weeks and months. I want to learn how to create, but need a bit of help in where to start. Can anyone point me in the right direction? I would greatly appreciate it :)
I thank you all in advance,
Check out SkillShare's classes on calligraphy and font making.
For the font-creation part, you'll probably want to pick up a copy of FontLab.
I learned how to use it from a book called "Learn FontLab fast"
As for the script portion, I leave that to someone else to answer.
