- multicolored font in EPS (Adobe Illustrator) formatNovember 2013: UPDATE : Added inline and dotted styleMay 2013: UPDATE: Included a Cyrillic alphabet and fixed some small errors.
- Technically this is not a font (as the current state of technology doesn't allow multicolored fonts) and you cannot write with it in your favorite program - you will need a vector editing application like Adobe Illustrator to easily create short texts for headlines, posters, logos or anything else. Or you cand simply stack few characters to create some random art :).
My initial inspiration came from Mohawk Paper logo.
- To easily change the color of any of the color segments : from Window Menu choose Swatches. Then in the Swatches palette change the color of the main color swatches by double-clicking the desired swatch.
- To achieve more interesting effects, from Window Menu choose Layers and then make Dots or Inline layers visible by clicking the eye icon. Or just choose the second color pallette.
- The archive also includes a Symbol Library which allows you to add the desired characters to your designs very easy. After you extract the files in the ZIP to your hard drive, just follow these 3 steps:
- 1. Make sure the SYMBOLS palette is visible, by choosing Window > Symbols
- 2. In the Symbols palette, click the little triangle in the top right corner and choose Open Symbol Library and then choose Other Library
- 3. Find multicolore-library.ai and open it. Now you just pick the desired characters from the list of thumbnails and drag & drop it to your artboard. That's all!!!
- To open the included files you need at Adobe Illustrator CS5 or better.
