DIY Font Design


March 16, 2013

You can contribute to the creation of a usable font! Pick an unclaimed letter, symbol, or punctuation mark and use paper prototyping techniques to design its look. When satisfied, a Teaching Artist will help transfer the creation into a computer program alongside other visitors' graphemes. Once complete, the entire font will be available for download from the MAKESHOP blog.

This is a drop-in activity. No experience is necessary, but the activity is most suitable for children ages 8 and up.
