Free Font: Tagesschrift

In 2005 I held a small FontLab workshop at the Bauhaus-University Weimar. The students were asked to draw and vectorize a typeface. This single typeface was the sample that I used. I decided to make into a finished font and release it.

This simple Serif typeface came about on a type design and FontLab workshop that I once held at the Bauhaus-University in Weimar in 2005 for fellow students. I asked them to draw a set of letters and vectorize them.

I created one myself to visualize the process, and decided to make it into a finished font. The whole design process took one day (Tagesschrift = day font). Okay, I needed another one for the kerning. A two day font.
