How To Vectorize Your Own Hand Drawn Font

Creative Market June 14, 2021 · 1 min read

We’re teaming up with Skillshare to bring you some fantastic premium design tutorials. In this post, you’ll see an excerpt from Jennifer Coyle’s Skillshare class on creating your own hand drawn font.

The video below will walk you through the process of taking your sketched letters into Illustrator and vectorizing them. The best part: it doesn’t require five years of Pen Tool experience. The process is super easy, so even if you’re a complete beginner, you should be able to follow along.

This is just a small sample of Jennifer’s awesome full course on creating a font in Illustrator. Head over to Skillshare to view the other videos (also check out Jennifer’s Creative Market shop).
