How to Design a Custom Font (Letter S)
1 lesson on ‘S’ drawing with Kelvin Song
The letter ‘s’ is considered one of the hardest letters in the alphabet to design. It is utterly unrelated to any other letter we have designed so far. Most people can’t handwrite this letter and produce a passable print rendition.
If you are learning the latin script and are struggling with handwriting this letter, do not despair—most of us don’t have a firm grasp on its construction either. Most neat writers (mostly teenage girls) handprint the letter something like a number ‘2’ reflected vertically and rounded slightly. Some people overexaggerate the hooks of the ‘s’ to the point where it approaches a figure ‘8’, others render the letter like a mirrored ‘z’.
