A Newsletter Full of Curious Content & Inquisitive Information

Well, for font’s sake!
What’s your favourite font? Or, better yet, what’s your least favourite font?
As digital marketers and social media managers, when we talk about design, we usually think of pictures and images to tell the story. However, fonts can convey just as much emotion and power as images! Fonts have feelings, you just need to know how to use them correctly to get your feelings across.
In this week’s newsletter, we look at the world of fonts. From our favourite letterers to free design downloads. And, as an added bonus, we even have a video on how to make your own font!
These are not your kindergarten’s ABC’s.

In less than 45 mins, Gary Simon of Coursetro teaches a class on how to use Illustrator to create fonts. He then also introduces a program called Fontself which exports those files to be used as actual fonts (and offers viewers a discount code for the software!) But don’t worry, if you’re just looking for free design advice, this video can still be of value to you!
