If you've always found the idea of creating hand drawn typography a little daunting then this brush set is for you!
Here's a quick video tutorial showing how to use them - https://vimeo.com/138522477
Drawing letters by hand is indeed hard and that's why I created these amazing brushes, to make the process much easier. They are the next best thing to having you own in house typographic artist! They are perfect for drawing too.
The brushes have subtle texture which follows the line of the text as it would on real hand-drawn typography. Using a hand-drawn font works well for small pieces of text but when it comes to headlines, the extra texture gives these brushes the edge. Plus, drawing the text yourself will feel like a much bigger achievement!
The other big advantage with this set is that you can re-pose the brushes should you make a mistake. You can also change the color, thickness and length after application.
I've included enough of a range of strokes to make loads of shapes, lengths and thicknesses. There are even tiny brushes for full stops and comas. Each brush has been carefully grouped and named so you can use them easily: Each shape has a number and then the length is coded A to G, A being the shortest and G being the longest.
Because of the varied range of brush lengths you'll be able to avoid over-stretching and distortion when drawing very short or long lines.
UPDATE! a version of the brushes with pressure sensitivity enabled is now included - perfect for those who use graphics tablets (Please note that this feature only works in Illustrator CS5+).
Here's what's included in the download pack:
- A massive selection of 74 Brushes.
- The quick reference guide shown on page 6 of the preview (CS5 - CC only).
- Demo file - showing the brushes in action (CS5 - CC only).
