Font tools, tips, updates and the occasional case study 😎
You may have seen Typeheist's new initiative, Bad Type Society, mentioned here and there. If you're curious, here's the lowdown.
I created this template to easily test my own fonts (and I'd love to share it). Included is sample text for paragraphs, numbers, fractions, currency, symbols, kerning pairs and bullets.
Script, cursive, handwriting, monospace? What's the difference between serif and sans serif? Heard these typography terms and now you've got more questions than answers? It can be a little confusing, so here is your quick guide to Typeface Classification.
Let's take a joyride through eight bold font pairings that go together like peanut butter and jelly - they shouldn't work, but somehow they just do.
Want to upload your Typeheist fonts to Figma? If you have an organisation or enterprise account, here's how to do it.
New to fonts? Here's a quick guide to get you up and running so you can use your desktop fonts.
Let me take you on a journey through the creation of the unruly handwritten font, Infamous.
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...
Handwriting fonts are a great way to add that personalised touch to a design or brand. There are thousands of unique fonts available, but what really goes into creating a messy handwriting font?
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. A glyph is the individual character that makes up a typeface. A ligature is two or more characters combined into a single entity, e.g. ‘ee’, ‘st’ or even ‘:)’.
As a font designer, you are probably very aware of the main tools that you use on a daily basis to create fonts. However, I'm here to recognise some of the more hidden gems that I use all through the font-creation-process.
