C.C Earlier this year I was commissioned to create the film campaign for exciting Australian Horror/Thriller Lemon Tree Passage. In true horror fashion, one early morning I received a call that said I had 7 days to create the artwork. 7 days to cast, clothe & make up a group of disheveled teenage victims & shoot the several elements needed for the end composite, locate & shoot a beautiful vintage car with an inspiring dashboard, composite & retouch the whole artwork in both Quad, Onesheet & TwoSheet format, create the title designs, as well as 2 days of solid file transferring ready for Berlinale festival. A challenge? How to design your own typeface After many years as a graphic designer and type enthusiast, I decided to channel some of my passion into my own lettering and typography design projects. After researching how to make your own font, it seemed a natural evolution to try my hand at designing a typeface. Much has been written about type design; on the history, drawing and technical complexities of creating typefaces (I've linked to some excellent resources at the bottom of this article) and many typography tutorials. But where exactly do you begin if you want to make your own font? If you're a designer or illustrator new to this discipline, what are the first practical steps, the common software and early considerations to get you going?

What they do, is actually use typographic forms in an artistic, or “illustrative” way. In fact, I was interested to see there are very few recognisable typefaces amongst the works of these artists at all, most of them preferring to hand draw their own letterforms from scratch. I want to thank everybody for their suggestions. I’m flattered to say I was among the suggestions, as well as a few people I love and admire, and quite a few I had never heard of, so sit back and enjoy.
