Designing a New Font

When I really think about it, I’m very selective about the fonts that I use. For papers and books, I prefer the traditional Times New Roman. Helvetica is also one of my favourites. I’m still trying to find an excuse to use Wingdings. After watching the short video above, I thought about designing my own font. I pondered what it might look like and how I would express the individuality of each letter but yet maintain some continuity. I love how the instructor incorporates M&M’s in the design process (I know I would have devoured mine) and that each member had the opportunity to participate in creating a new font. Very cool and very inspirational.
