From inspiration, to letterforms, to final font

In our interactive Dribbble Workshop session Making Your First Font, Dan Cederholm will demystify dipping your toes into the world of type design—he’ll show you that creatives of any stripe can take their letterform ideas and begin crafting them into fully-functional fonts. You’ll learn how to gather inspiration for your typeface, iterate upon letterforms, as well as translate your rough sketches into Glyphs app to start bringing your design to life.

Plus, when you sign up for this limited-seat Dribbble Workshop session, you’re going to leave with a headful of actionable ideas on how these typeface designs came to life, as well as three free font weights from Dan’s very own typeface families.
