The Lyuba Typeface

I dedicate this typeface to my girlfriend Lyuba. It took me about 2 days to complete.

So here it is! This is the first full typeface I’ve ever designed, and I can’t believe that it’s actually usable! It feels great to own a font which is based on your own handwriting. It’s just… weird – in a cool way. It kind of looks like Comic Sans, but I’d definitely pick mine over Comic Sans any time :p

Kerning and Metrics was THE most time consuming step of designing this font! I did my best to try and find most of the combinations to do kerning on, but I’m sure that I missed something. I anybody out there know if there’s a good way to make sure that you’ve done kerning on all pairs of a font, don’t hesitate to tell me :)

Oh, I would also like to make a special feature in this font – when you type JMN, it should replace those letters with my signature (a custom made glyph). I’m pretty sure that’s possible, but I don’t know what it’s called.

You will be able to download this font from my portfolio once I upload it there (when I’ve fixed the last issues).
