Create custom fonts.
Finding the right words can be hard, and so can finding the right type design. But Illustrator can help you create custom letterforms and fonts that fit your unique layout and design.
Help your words stand out with variable fonts from Adobe Originals, available in Illustrator’s font menu. Choose an existing font to kick off your design process, then adjust the weight, width, or slant of the type.
Get the exact look you want by drawing freehand in Illustrator or by importing hand lettering or digital art from Adobe Photoshop.
Use Image Trace to transform your imported font sketch into an easily edited vector graphic. Tweak it for legibility and shape each letter to get the unique typographic look you want.
With third-party plug-ins to help you finalize and manage fonts, it’s easy to add a new style to your toolbox and apply it to new graphic design projects.
