New to Typophile? Accounts are free, and easy to set up.
Hi guys (and gals),
I'm currently working on a project where my AD has asked me to illustrate the process of drawing up the words 'The End'. From the sketch, to the final digital version in illustrator / type program. Its for a large client (Panasonic) and I need to version this in 26 languages, and I need to do 3 or 4 stages for each one. (Sketch / Firming Up / Scanned in and illustrated / Final). aghh!
The font is set, Din Condensed Medium. So what I need to do is retro fit the idea to the font...
Sadly, I'm no expert typographer! I've built/tested a couple in my spare time for the fun of it, which is why I've been asked to do this.
So I wondered if anyone knows of any nice examples or tutorials of people drawing up there type. I'm just looking for the style of drawing, and what kind of grids/lines people use to help sketch, and then firm up their designs.
Any help, much appreciated,
