Illustrator templates for font design, download here...

Greetings fellow typophiles:

I developed these templates a few years ago and thought they might be of some use to those who work in Illustrator. They are set up on 11 x 17 pages and accommodate 60 characters per sheet (there are 2 templates). I use them for roughing out ideas and storing glyphs for importing into FontLab.

You can adjust the x-height, etc by unlocking the guides, selecting and moving their positions. (See below for a sample gif.)

The files are zipped for PC folks and stuffed for Mac users. You can download them here:

Also: If anyone has any bright ideas, please feel free to improve upon the existing design, email them to me and I will post new versions.
