I'M JEN WAGNER
Hopelessly obsessed with type? Me too.
When you're completely type-obsessed, it can be hard not to imagine creating your own custom typefaces – complete with exactly the features you need and can't seem to find anywhere else.
Or maybe you're business-savvy and want to create fonts you can sell online!
Either way, the search for online resources to learn how to design type can be extremely frustrating and disappointing.
I want to make your search less stressful. As a self-taught type designer, I've spent the last 4 years learning through experience what I couldn't find on the internet, and in the process have created fonts used by Facebook, Bath & Body Works, Better Homes & Gardens, and more!
I want to teach you, too! I've taken everything I've learned about designing sans serif fonts and take you step by step through designing your own.
