#ColorFontWeek: 5 color fonts over 5 days
In October 2017, Fontself, the Illustrator team and Adobe partnered with five top creatives from around the world to celebrate the arrival of color fonts!
This collaboration - the #ColorFontWeek - showcases the potential of a groundbreaking font technology, OpenType-SVG, which brings color, shades, textures and opacity to digital typefaces. And the good news is that color fonts are now supported in the latest versions of Illustrator & Photoshop CC... ! YES!!!
You can learn more about this launch on Adobe's blog and check this Fontself post to read about the full story behind this project.
And now, here are the 5 color fonts that are available for free during the #ColorFontWeek, from October 31st to November 5th 2017. Kudos to their 5 generous designers!!!
Now let's have a look behind the scenes, as these color fonts have been crafted after a lot of research and hard work:
Wonder how these cool creatives crafted their very first color font?
Easy: they used Fontself Maker, an extension for Illustrator & Photoshop CC that brings font creation capabilities to both AI & PS.
The process is super simple: doodle your letters in Illustrator and just drag & drop them on the Fontself Maker panel:
Fontself Maker can export both standard OpenType vector fonts as well as OpenType-SVG color vector fonts.
