The Font Factory offers designers the possibility to learn font design and font creation using Fontographer and/or FontLab. Participants can choose either a 1-3 full-day course or a unique package which combines training with a holiday in one of the most beautiful areas of England—the Cotswolds.
The Font Factory is housed in a converted barn in a small village, which lies within easy reach of Oxford, Cirencester, Broadway, Chipping Campden, Stroud, Stow-in-the-Wold and Bourton-on-the-Water.
The training courses offered are on a one-to-one or one-to-two basis and are tailored to meet the exact requirements of the participants. This flexible approach means that both newcomers to font creation and those already experienced, can benefit. Participants can choose to have both morning and afternoon sessions to learn as much as possible in the shortest time or just in the mornings. This provides the opportunity for further private study or for free time in the afternoons to explore the Cotswolds. You choose!
Training is given in the use of various font creation and graphics applications such as Fontographer, FontLab and Illustrator, all with reference to the four stages of font creation, namely: design,
digitisiation, letterspacing and font generation.
With the number of participants limited to two at any one time, they can bring their own projects and work on them during the tutorials. Participants, together with any accompanying partners, can be accomodated within the barn on a B&B basis. And what's more the cost is tax-deductable.
