10 million points!!! The fourth day began by placing individual characters created by each student into Fontographer. A discussion took place on the proper techniques and adjustments of letterform structure and spatial relationships between letters. With this in mind, students then revised their characters to create a more unified alphabets. For tomorrow each students works on their specified letters and makes at least 20 correction notes to the print outs! Yes, we also should start to think about the name (really important!) and a final use for the type. Some students will create the missing letters as well as ornamental elements to work along the type.
