Assignment - Font Face

Go to the menu at the top and select Type, then pull down to Glyphs. Glyphs will appear on your desktop and be a guide for all the letters within each font. Change fonts with the pull down selections at the bottom of the Glyphs box.

Go to Object at the top menu and pull down to Transform and pull across to selections of rotating the letter, changing the size,… Change the size of letters and their location to create a truly unique face.
