What are your favorite tools when designing type? Do you have a favorite type of pen, brush, pencils, papers? Emilie
Emilie, I think that the best tool is: the brain… Happy works…
Here is a typeface I am working on. I am waiting for PanLab 5. What do you think about the kerning ? AS
Okay, but hej, I remember I posted this image in an old thread ‘weapon of choice,’ I could not ﬁnd the link. Anyway here is my image : Ciao. AS

Oho. Notable pencil.
Don’t forget the CNS and an endocrine system for ﬂavor. A brain by itself won’t help much. Skin is good
paco, that was a pretty *smart* answer.
I couldn’t live without my erasers. But Paco is right. “Think with your brain.” TM (Hey, is it cool that the image looks tilted or what.) hhp
Really smart… ﬁrst tool: brain second tool: paper and pencil third tool: mac with freehand 7 + phontographer 4 Warm regards…
I use a frying pan. AS

Hrant, It does look tilted… god darn optical illusions making me dizzy…
My favorite tool is my eyes
I enjoy sketching with an H pencil on butter paper. For a ﬁhished sketch I usually use a sharp 6H pencil.
