It’s pretty easy for many of us to take fonts for granted. They come installed in your computer and the various typefaces help you express yourself better. But behind each typeface is a designer that works at making each typeface look “just right”.
This recently released video by type designer Diana Ovezea provides a rare glimpse at the workflow of a type designer, specifically showing what he or she can do in an hour of their workday.
At first glance, the sped up video seems uninteresting, but it offers an insider look at the inner workings of type design, from drawing letterforms from scratch to checking them and determining the space around each one. In the video we see Ovezea making corrections on italic spacing and drawing additional glyphs.
Watch the video below to see what happens in an hour of a type designer's day. You can read more about her process here.
