I'M JEN WAGNER
Coming up empty on your search for type design help? I've been there.
The search for online resources to learn how to design type can be extremely frustrating and disappointing. I know because I've been there!
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 been able to make a living selling those fonts online! Plus, they've been 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, letter by letter through designing your own.

Are the lessons in the course pre-recorded?
Yes! Every lesson is pre-recorded so you can learn at your own pace, without having to show up at a specific time. Just log in, visit the course page, and watch as you're able to make time!
Will I need to purchase anything once I'm in the course?
Kind of. Glyphs Mini is the software we'll be using for this course, and it comes with a free 30-day trial. After that, it's $49. I recommend waiting to download the free trial until you're ready to sit down and start the course so you get the most amount of time possible with the free version.
What if I use a PC – will Glyphs Mini work for me?
Unfortunately, Glyphs Mini only works for Macs – BUT there is another affordable software called Font Creator that works well for PC users. You may experience a bit of a learning curve as the course is not taught in that software, but the same principles of type design and letter-building will apply.
What will I need to watch the lessons in the course?
To watch the lessons, you'll need internet access and access to Vimeo (some countries restrict Vimeo as a platform). Then, you can access the course on any device!
Do I need to have design experience to take this course?
While not totally necessary, I recommend you have some experience with typography and drawing vectors (or drawing with the Pen tool in programs like Photoshop or Illustrator) as the learning process will be a little faster for you.
Can I ask questions or get feedback?
Yes! That is what the Facebook group is for – you'll be able to ask questions and get feedback from myself and your peers when you join.
