Font tools, tips, updates and the occasional case study 😎
Ever wondered why everyone's handwriting is so different? Or how you can 'know' someones handwriting? Is our personality reflected in our handwriting? Turns out, maybe...
For me, the process is a little more chaotic when compared to designing a serif or sans serif. As there are fewer 'rules', I find this means there is less focus on how each individual character looks and more on how they all look and operate as a whole.
Below you’ll find sample text that I use to test my fonts. I’ve included an ever-growing selection of character and symbol combinations to check your kerning, colliding and overall tone.
Glyphs and ligatures are essential to create unique and realistic handwriting typefaces. As they are customised to each font, they also help to convey the overall tone and style and can be used to add personality and character.
