How can we help you?
Can you design a custom font?
Font design is part of our ongoing design activity at Zetafonts. You are welcome to contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org with enquiries regarding custom font creation for your project.
Our services range from custom modifications of our fonts, to handwriting conversion into digital format, to full specimen design.
CUSTOM VERSIONS OF OUR FONTS
You can request modifications of our licensed fonts - eg bolder, alternate letters, or different languages. This is our most basic service.
FULL SPECIMEN DESIGN
This is a complex design process. Our fonts are usually generated as part of our logo design process in our corporate identity work. So usually we have a small subset of letters on which to base the font.
Title fonts are faster and easier to develop, while text fonts (which usually have to be at least made in the three basic styles, bold, regular, italic) require more time and a bigger budget.
Additional matter of consideration is:
a) weights - each weight can be developed in italic or little caps form. Usually we design a regular and a bold version, and at least one italic.
b) format - Truetype are our basic choice, but we can provide Opentype too, with ligatures, full character sets and alternates.
c) language - if the font has to be used in various languages it can need non-basic character sets. This must be considered.
Please provide us a detailed brief of your project for a cost estimate.
FONT DESIGN FROM HANDWRITING
If you want your handwriting, please provide us a high-resolution scan (300 dpi) of your handwriting sample.
We will then be able to provide an estimate of costs and timing.
