The Adobe Fonts Show: Making your own Font with Delve Fonts

3,752

Perhaps you’ve thought, “maybe I could try making my own font” but you have no idea where to begin. Fear not! This week, Ari & Ben are joined by Delve Withrington, one of GDUSA’s People to Watch in 2021, founder of Delve Fonts, and an Adobe Fonts foundry partner. In this episode, Delve will show us how to start sketching your ideas, how to turn sketches into vectors we can use, the basics of Fontself Maker extension for Photoshop and Illustrator, and how to overcome roadblocks as you’re creating and learning.
