Custom Type Design


Are you looking for a custom typeface to establish or reinvigorate your brand? Maybe you are looking for custom-designed fonts for an event or product launch? If so, you’re in the right place, I’d be happy to talk to you about tailoring a brief and price to suit your requirements.

In order to price a typeface design, I would need to establish a brief with you. There are many factors to consider, perhaps you might complete the form on this page – this will help to create that brief.

Note that my production process will be as follows:

  1. Finalise the brief and provide a glyph map – this details all the glyphs to be drawn, provided and adhered to.
  2. Begin initial sketches.
  3. Get your approval to proceed based on these pencil sketches.
  4. Begin working on screen and drawing initial characters.
  5. Get your approval for initial keywords and branding messages, e.g. “Your Company Name”, “Your Company Tagline”.
  6. Proceed to typeface completion.
  7. Testing of typeface for spacing and kerning.
  8. Hinting typeface for screen optimisation.
  9. Production and presentation of test documents for your approval. These will be an array of single lines and paragraphs at varying sizes to prove the typeface works as intended.
  10. Client feedback and revisions.
  11. Client approval and handover of final files.

Note also that a payment plan will need to be agreed upon with an initial deposit paid before any work is undertaken. I do not take on any speculative work.

Note that there is a minimum fee for each font weight produced and delivered. The price will increase dependent on the design brief.

Note that typeface design is a lengthy process, for example, a 4-weight typeface in both roman and italic to Adobe Latin 1 specifications will take at least 3 months to complete. If we are working to a deadline, this needs to be fully considered before project commencement.

If the above is agreeable to you, we can talk further.
