Objective: To create a hand drawn header for our digital portfolios and, in the process, create a hand drawn font to submit to an online database that sells hand drawn fonts. Here are your procedures:
Hunt and search for type sets that you like. Here are some places to start:
Once you have your ideas down, start practicing different lettering. Your title should be simple (i.e. "Laura Allen's Digital Portfolio". Trying mixing two ideas together--experiment. Write out an alphabet of upper and lower case letters. Once you get the look you like, you can copy it using tracing paper. Write your title of your DP in black ink and turn it in when you are ready to have it scanned. Once it is scanned, you can upload it to your DP. Et Voila!
