Everyone who works at C&I brings something unique to the table. Outside of our professional know-how, we all possess a little something extra that, in one way or another, winds up in the art we create. Turns out that our copywriter’s handwriting is borderline flawless, so naturally we made it into a font.
Turning handwriting into a font is a lot easier said than done. You can’t simply scan a piece of paper, isolate lettering, and create a digital imprint. No, you have to carefully write out each individual letter, number, and character then piece those fragments together to make the handwriting not only legible but natural.
Connor’s handwriting proved difficult in this respect. He writes in an unusual mix of cursive and print. Depending on which letters are strung together also determines how the letters are structured. Basically, he has different variations for the same letter depending on where they fall in a sentence of word.
Honestly, it’s hard to articulate the small, yet crucial details that made creating Connor’s Font a challenging project. Just watch this episode of The Dailies and you’ll see for yourself.
