From Concept to Completion Webinar

Joe Treacy will give our December webinar “The Fevered Brow of a Type Designer: Font Design from Concept to Completion”. In this webinar  (Tuesday, 3 December at 11:00CST) Joe will take us through the steps of designing a font from beginning to end. He will describe the tasks of creating glyphs and building a typeface from a parts library. He’ll share his unique approach to setting the metrics for a font and make some suggestions on the final product target in various font formats.
If you ever wanted to get the benefit of experience (without actually having to go through the experience) this is your opportunity to look over the shoulder of a seasoned pro and see how the total font design process works. Joe’s presentation will give you the inside scoop on what it’s really like to prepare a commercial font from scratch.
There is a small fee (US$24.99) for this webinar and we are limited in the number of places, so sign up early by clicking here.
