I’ve always wanted to design a font set. Today I read about a challenge on Instagram called “My Beautiful Alphabet (#mybeautifulalphabet).” The goal is to design a font for each letter of the alphabet for the next 26 weeks. The font can be drawn by hand, roughly sketched, or you can take a font already created and alter or embellish it.
I jumped at the challenge. To create the letter A, I started on my Wacom tablet drawing out the basic lines. After I had the lines positioned where I wanted them, I then applied different point sizes of the Calligraphy brush in Illustrator.
