I recently had the opportunity to design a good friends wedding invitation suite.  They are getting married in an old brick Flour Mill in Spokane, WA.  They shared with me their vision of filling the place with birch wood, succulents, mason jars and candles.  Sounds pretty amazing, right?  The wheels immediately began turning in my head about how I could represent this in invitation form.  They trusted me with complete creative control over the design, which doesn’t happen often!  I had a lot of fun with it…painting each one of those little succulents by hand!  I think the final design turned out to be one of my favorites to date.

    How do you make your fonts, do you use a system that actually turns it into a downloadable font or is it something you just make on the specific piece you are working on?

      I do both Katie :)
      If I make my own font that I can use in Photoshop, I use a program called TypeTool. It’s an application that you have to pay for, but if you plan on making a lot of fonts, it’s worth it.
