Notatus Engraver Font

Custom Font • July 15, 2005


Notatus Font Design

Notatus is a custom engraving font I designed while learning how to make my own fonts in 2005. I was never happy with the font choices in engraving programs like Finale, most programs offered a default corporate font, and a jazzy “handwritten” font. I wanted something more inspired.

I built 211 glyphs as vector elements covering the most common used characters and symbols. I never compiled the font for use, but it was a fun exercise and I learned a lot about what goes into font creation.
