Handwritten Fonts and Design : Needed Softwares and Resources
You will get some resources like brushes, patterns for Adobe Photoshop in websites like deviantArt. But, is the answer for Handwritten Design is Adobe Photoshop ?
Its iDraw for Mac. iDraw is quite powerful vector drawing and illustration software only for Mac and iPad. The Mac version supports Retina Display. Its $25. Not much if you think of other Adobe products. Personally I think, the smoothing feature somehow matches with Mac and it creates a beautiful effect. You can create animated signatures like this, if you combine with Adobe Photoshop.
There are lot of such softwares but this iDraw is something like iMovie, has enough power to give a professional result without any tablet really. With Magic Mouse, it becomes more easy.
Now, its obvious that, if you apply more effects in Abobe Photoshop, the work will look great. Definitely – we can scan the complex designs which really needs to be drawn on a real paper. Obviously, if you know nothing about traditional drawing no iDraw will work.
