Pasta Sauce Font
I've always been intrigued by typography and have admired the people that create fonts so I decided to create one of my own!
This is a decorative font that matches my style of illustration. I designed it similar to how I design my illustrations: stacked layers!
Here's how it works
This is the character fill color and must be the base.
This is the character glare and should have a low opacity.
Next is the shading. This should have a low opacity as well.
This layer contains “sauce.”
The sauce needs some detail too! (low opacity)
Finally, the outline on top! This can be any color as well.
I started by desiging SVGs of each character in Illustrator, including the small pieces used for the glare and shading details. You'll notice that this font is a distant cousin of Gotham Bold :) I then imported each SVG into FontForge, adjusted the spacing values, and exported! I did not get around to creating puncuation marks, but the font was downloaded for free by over 175 people. Here are more samples!
