2504.By special request of a couple of people who need a favor and who think delicious things. You know who you are.
And here's a sample of the midpoint of a font-design process:
Despite the astounding availability of digital design tools, this designer's favorite tools are still the simple ones: paper, pen, pencil, ruler. Also, a vintage pair of actual Naval navigation dividers (of which I'll highlight subsequently).
You can't go wrong with the classics. Also, the rougher and less-sophisticated the design tool, the more punch and satisfaction the act has. Don't get me wrong here - the digital suites have delivered unprecedented power into the hands of the individual designer, but as far as I'm concerned, if you can draw with at least a pencil on paper, and you don't, you ain't got nothin'.
