Custom OpenType Font Creation

Novus - Typeface Design

This typeface was made from concept to completion utilizing a variety of abilities. The final typeface created was an OpenType Font. This typeface was styled after similar typefaces such as Agency.


The process began with drawing out concepts for the typeface and working out the logistics of their arrangements on graph paper. Once the basic forms were created, they were then reconstructed using vector artwork in Adobe Illustrator. After all uppercase and lowercase glyphs were constructed in vector form, they were then imported into the Fontlab software where they were then edited to clean up any issues with the spacing, and to create the final typeface.
