Tutorial: Creating fonts in Illustrator and Fontlab – Part 1 from Go Media on Vimeo

This video is a brief introduction into how to prepare a font you design in Adobe Illustrator for Fontlab. Fontlab is the program of choice for building and managing fonts. There are a few steps that you need to do to prepare your illustrations to work within Fontlab but I tried to show you the most basic way to work in Fontlab.

Later on I will be creating far more extensive videos that will teach you much more that you can do within Fontlab. At Go Media we are going to start sharing video tutorials of how we do some cool tricks and tips on how to work better in creative software.

I have never done a video tutorial before so your feedback is greatly appreciated! Please let me know what you think and how I can improve!
