The Scoop

After a long period of various typographic experiments, I decided I wanted to seriously take a stab at creating my own typeface. Drew Sans, a sans serif typeface based loosely on my own handwriting, was the end result.

You never really know how much time and effort goes into making a typeface until you actually jump into making one. I went through dozens and dozens of total revisions for each of the characters. After that came the challenges of kerning pairs and individual letter spacing.
