design and other stuff ... for your Wedding things.

Is anyone using their own handwritten font for Web or Computer (PS, LR ...) personalized look ?

Here is my own awful font I just created. A lot of tuning has to be done, but it is a begining !

Is this a true font? Meaning, you had an application that turned your handwriting into entries in your Font folder?

It's pretty hard to make a good font. To do it right, you need to account for kerning (the spacing in between letter combinations) and oter stuff.

I don't use my own handwriting, but I do use a custom font that I purchased on my website and other materials.

This can cause problems if the devices do not have the fault installed as they will substitute another font and that affects all kinds of things and not in a good way.

You can get away with a special font when you vector map the output for sending it to a press shop but it is not a good use of your time for Web work.

Pretty much any modern browser supports CSS3, which is what most custom fonts are written in. There are still some people using out of date browsers that don't support it, but if I based my site on what the out-of-date minority are using, custom fonts would be the least of my worries.

If a font is what books clients I'm going to jump off a bridge.

Every time we drive through a new town, my wife looks at a restaurant and says 'That place looks good!' or 'Who would eat there?'. There are very few reasons for this. She knows nothing of the food, service or anything else. The only thing she's seen is the font on the sign. It matters.

I'll bet you'll pick your bridge based on aesthetics

I'll pick one with photoshop brush humming birds on it. Maybe something with a vintage camera outline and a tree or anchor too. The date placard will be a bastardization of comic sans and papyrus. I'll crowd source my headstone design and only pay one person $20 for the effort.

If that fails I'll use a couture leather camera strap as back up noose.

Underline emphasis mine.


So, so true, Tony.


I learned to engrave (trophy placards, serving platters, monograms, name plates, ID bracelets (anyone remember those?), silverware, plaques, etc etc) when I was about five and engraved no telling how many items through my teens.


When I began formally studying typography in my early twenties, I already knew most of the material because I'd been doing it for over a decade and came up with my own "rules" or aesthetic approaches to the job at hand.


The point is, if a veritable child can on his own discover what works well typographically and why, how much more so can good or poor design influence where Amy chooses to dine.

Yeah, God is in the details.


Once "desktop publishing" became available to the untrained masses, I can remember thinking graphic (and CAD) design software should have child safety locks built in. The horror upon horror that the democratization of graphic "design" has brought to the world is a case study in technology gone wrong.


Hmmm. Sort of like much of photography these days.

Generally speaking, there are six things that book clients.

1. Reputation - done

2. Marketing - the look, the brand, the identity, the way the marketing makes the client feel

3. Personality - this is a people and relationship business

4. Sales skill - helping the client understand (and more importantly feel) how your product can make their life easier, more enjoyable, safer, more gratifying

5. The work - almost last, though the work is also part of No. 2

6. The pricing - last


The work shows up surprisingly low because it's only a part of the client experience and how we make them feel.

And yeah, your font and graphic design is part of the second most important element

The font is located in one's host and called from the website wherever in the world, no need to have it in the device of the viewer.
