AIGA ATL | Type Design: An Introduction to Glyphs

July 13 @ 1:00 pm - 4:00 pm

Join Tiffany Prater and Thomas Jockin on a Saturday afternoon to learn the basics of designing and generating a font with the font-design software Glyphs (MAC only). In the first hour, learn the basics of drawing a font, generating a font, and previewing it on Adobe InDesign. At the end of the class, you will have a deep appreciation about how fonts are made and perhaps an addiction to type.



  • Download a trial version of Glyphs 3 on your MAC (macOS 10.11+, no windows).
  • Participants will receive a trial license for Glyphs 3


LIMITED SEATING ONLY—participants must register through Eventbrite to get the Zoom link. No prior experience is required in font design, but some experience with Bézier-based vector drawing tools is handy. We’ll resend the information within the week of the workshop.
