    Ok, so you have drawn this awesome piece of lettering, the whole alphabet, and now you wonder what to do with it? Should you post it on Designer News, Instagram or Behance? Hey - why not create a font out of this?

    Well, you already tried that in the past, but making fonts can be a daunting task at first… So, what if you could just bring all your lettering into Illustrator, and simply drag & drop it to instantly turn it into a real font? (that be nice, no? ;)

    Then say hello to ★★ Fontself Maker ★★, the very first solution that brings you font creation capabilities right into Adobe Illustrator CC. Yup! Nothing new to learn, no complex software to learn, and no more back & forth trips between multiple tools.

    Fontself Maker is an extension for Illustrator and it’s adding a new panel to you favorite vector editor. Select your lettering, drop it, and there we go: you can now preview your font in realtime, refine it, and export it as an OpenType file.

    Before you ask, it’s available for Illustrator CC (no CS6 or earlier) and works on both Mac & PC. Check this video to see all the latest additions: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ar06jNH3RX8

    And as usual, if you like it, please SHARE THE NEWS with other creatives, they will love it =)

    Enjoy, and we are happy to answer any question! ✌︎
