Thought id say hello to everyone, im paul im a fresh graduate from essex. I work as a freelance graphic designer to fund my hobbies and evenings out. I also make various typefaces in my spare time to fuel my obscene obsession with typography.

Welcome Paul. what did u graduate in? I love type and typography, love to see your typography. Do you create fonts for Mac? I'd be interested to see some. Always looking for something new to freshen up our work. Welcome aboard.

Hi Paul,

Welcome to Design Forums, pleased you could make it along. Your typefaces look great on your site, really like your new experimental 'unremitting' , and squiggles looks cool too - is squiggles the one you have used in your ph logo on the site?

Look forward to hearing more from you.
Thanks, Greg

Cool, I thought so and yes I noticed you had a couple in development, do you have a particular piece of software you use to design them?

thanks very much i appreciate it! For making my typefaces i use illustrator and fontlab studio. I used to use a x11 based app but the name eludes me and i also have used fontographer too, but im quite comfortable with fontlab now.

I just make the outlines in illustrator because im much quicker than in fontlab, then copy and paste straight into fontlab, nice and easy!
