Foreword: The word changing is like a half -proposition composition. The material gives me as a narrative as much as possible.It is not significant to help you change your words. This is not significant. I will try to maintain the original font direction, solve the main contradictions, help everyone clarify ideas, and expand some small knowledge points.If you feel that there is something wrong with the word changing, please leave a message to discuss.


In each issue, I will choose a more representative word to modify it. There is no strange submissions that have not been selected. I hope that there will be you in the next period.The characters selected in this issue are a set of cartoon types. This type of character is mostly used in children, mother and infant products, and the main features are easy, interesting and affinity.


How to express the temperament of childization through font design?The original draft has given a good answer: soft, round and variety of strokes.Therefore, the feeling of relaxed and pleasant feels intuitively in this set of words. With the strokes of the strokes in the font, the handling of the strokes and the processing of the edges make it better.


After grasping the above features, you will definitely get a set of words that look quite cartoon, but some problems cannot be avoided, because he will make your words more delicate.



We often pay attention to the unity of strokes and details, and the unity of space is most likely to be ignored.First remove the original stroke and leave the font "real body" and make anti -white treatment to observe the negative space of the font.


If the space of the first word is used as a standard, the latter two characters are a bit tight, especially the part of ‘pro -probon. There are more strokes and the space is particularly cramped.


Looking at the outline of the strokes, there are some unnecessary "jittering" such as "jun" second, and such changes will appear fine; other lines are soft but not smooth enough, which is actually better to modify. Just adjust the adjustment. Just adjust it.Just anchor handle.


When it comes to an anchor point, if you want to insert a precautions, the more the anchor points must be better. Many useless anchor points sometimes destroy the smoothness of the lines, and it will be more troublesome to adjust it yourself.Therefore, I will execute the [Object-Path-Simplified] option before regulating this set of words.


The balance of the space and the smooth line of the line are the direction of the next adjustment.As shown above, you can observe the internal space changes and adjustment of strokes in the word "shell".


In the last time the first adjustment, the red line is the outline of the adjustment.The overall rhythm remains unchanged, and the space emphasized on it. The adjustment in this group of characters can be simply understood as a large reduction point of the space, and the spacing is increased.


Everyone should have noticed that the word "new" has used a little bit of love, very good move, but I always feel that the position of this heart is a bit embarrassing, or it is too low -key to stuff it in the corner.In a stroke, it will be visually highlighted.


Just amend the word of this type, just pay attention to the above, and the rest is the more patience and time adjust the anchor handle.


The figure above is the level of the original draft. There are two levels in total. It looks like a simple effect of adding a drawing edge. It cannot be said that it is not right, but it can be richer, as shown in the figure below.


It only adds two levels, the first level of highlights and the small projection of the third level. Of course, the level of the fourth level is not in the middle alignment. There must be a dislocation relationship.picture.


# 终 终 Comparison

Finally, in summary, the design of the cartoon characters is particularly critical to the soft and round strokes. Pay attention to the balance and unity of the space. The final hierarchical relationship must be clearly in place. Let's take a look at the comparison before and after the modification.



Is there any adorable words in this issue to you?I know that it always looks simple. I have done it myself, and I learn to learn without asking for one article.The most important thing to clarify the mind!Well, ok, wipe
