  • Re: MyFonts and families

    Coming from the perspective of someone that is much younger and less experienced I believe the ability to make a "trendy" font family is far easier than it was years ago. You can easily download the software and find tutorials ect. BUT, these trendy types like handmade and scripts are concurrent with design trends and that's why they are so cheap because cheaply made = cheaply sold. Hell with the knowledge I have gained in the last 6 months I could easy go on illustrator and use a cool stroke effect and create a trendy "font" in a weekend or 2. But I believe good type still concours and when you put the time in — the appreciation will come. I think those packs of fonts (I get emails all the time from creative market and other sources) are just a collection of half throw alway typefaces and half trends that will never go anywhere. This strives young designers to create something that is far better and will last for a lot longer. The trend of "handmade" will go away as soon as Nexa Rust is no longer around (soon I hope)

    Like the " Benguiat " look in some of the forms, but it would be cool to see  that tail brought out or something on that R, like a serif gothic look.

    Oh how much I love the endless discoveries in type. I wish I could stop my obsession but it just keeps growing. Thanks for the references. 
  • Marleen "A stencil didone face"

    Hey guys, took a long break from my previous design "Dawson Grotesque" To play around and experiment. I am really starting to see all the things I was doing wrong and am happy to be learning more and more every day ! You guys know how that goes  :D 

    Check out my fun experiment, I have seen a few "stencil types" that use the modern/didone look, some work, some are bad — I wanted to try it out ! 

    This is not a body copy typeface, nor is it very LEGIBLE, but it is beautiful, and unique.

    lots of .noglyph because I have't done punctuation. — ignore it !
