I have loved making fonts on my computer for years, but I’ve been looking for a way to move my process over to my iPad. Then I found iFont Maker, which lets you make fonts quickly and painlessly for only a few bucks.
In this class, I’ll show you every step of how to create unique custom fonts using iFont Maker.

I’ll show you:
- easy ways to make your fonts cohesive and smooth, so you can focus on bringing your personal style to a font set.
- how to create a simple handwriting font.
- how to create a single patterned element, and copy it to other letters of the alphabet to create a cohesive font set.
- how to create a cursive font by using an existing font as a template and adding your personal style to the strokes.
I’ll show you some interesting ways to display your font online, so if you want to offer them for sale or as a free downloads, you can create beautiful display images for your fonts.

Whether you’re an artist, designer, illustrator or hobbyist, using your own fonts is a great way to add a unique, personal touch to your work.
All you need to take this class is your iPad, the iFontMaker app, and a stylus. I’ll be using the Apple Pencil, but you could use any stylus, or even your finger.
