vector

Hi everybody,

I draw a logo with a Google font because my client want the same typo on his website and on his logo.
So I use "Coustard" : http://www.google.com/webfonts/specimen/Coustard

But when I vectorize it with illustrator, it's completly deformed... as you can see in attached file.
I never saw it.

Do you know a copy of coustard or an other solution to vectorize a typo ?
Do you understand what's the problem ?

Thank for your support

In an attempt to learn from the best, I have been looking at the work of established Bezier masters. The short list of typographers that I came up with is just based on my limited prejudices:

Matthew Carter
David Berlow
Lucas de Groot
Gerard Unger
Leslie Cabarga
Tobias Frere-Jones
Robert Slimbach

I would love to learn more, and I feel I have overlooked many vector drawing heros.

If you could nominate five people to the Bezier Drawing Hall of Fame, who would you choose?

Vector blur?

Dear typophiles:
I'm experimenting with a blurred version of one of my typefaces. I have all glyphs as outlines, please see example:

This is what I'm trying to achieve:

I used Photoshop to blur the first image (Filter>Blur>Gaussian) and then Threshold (Image>Adjustment) to get the black/white image.

My question:
Is there a way of doing this while maintaining a vector format? (inside Illustrator for example?)

Best

I've seen this specific type of shading treatment on a vast number of logos that I've run across and I love it.

For clarification purposes, does this specific type of shading have a formal name or technique associated with it?

I've always figured that this kind of effect could be done roughly with an algorithm or black and white conversion plugin and then fine tuned, rather than entirely hand drawn--but I've never run across anything that splits shades of gray into black bars of varying thickness like this.

Might any of you kind folks here on Typophile have any recommendations on how to consistently produce this effect?

Thanks!

I've been wondering at this for some time now...

If I want to use a font in a headline or whatever, but I don't own the font -
Is it legal to trace that headline from say a catalog or an image?

Does that fall into the category of piracy/theft?

Hello everyone!
The "Almighty" Seb Lester updated his website with brand new lettering posters.

Here you can read an interview from ILT blog

Scketches show us how he got to the final solution, developing the entire process.

I'm a big fan of all Lester works (who is not?...lol) and I wish I could start developing some fine lettering artworks...
We can see a lot of hand-writing developement, then vectorized.
About the vector-converting process, do you have any, suggestion, tutorials, links, guides, in order to understand the right way to do that?
