Sketchnote




The Sketchnote Handbook is drawn as much as it is written. The author, designer and illustrator Mike Rohde saught to make an inspirational, visually unique book that introduces readers to sketchnoting—a practical art Rohde developed to translate ideas presented at live events into easily recalled bits of information.

The Sketchnote Typeface was born of necessity: Rohde needed a series of hand-drawn fonts to produce his book. So from the get-go, the typeface was made to be practi­cal, to convey the human char­acter of Rohde’s hand­writing and unique letter­ing but with all the benefits of digi­tal fonts. The family is comprised of five fonts: Sketchnote Text in Reg­ular, Bold and Italic, plus Sketchnote Square and Sketchnote Dingbats.

Sketchnote Text is a friendly, casual script with a bouncy baseline and a warm texture. To emulate natural hand­writing, OpenType features auto­matically switch be­tween multiple versions of each letter or number, with over 240 alter­nates in each text font. OpenType kerning classes are used with unique kerns made to tame pairings of all those wily alter­nates for con­sistent spacing.

Sketchnote Square is a bold, somewhat com­pressed head­line type that complements the text fonts. Drawn in­stead of written, the characters in Square have neat little hap­pen­stance voids within the strokes. The Sketchnote Dingbats is a handy selection of fun icons, rules, and arrows—just some great functional tidbits for your design projects.

The texture of Sketchnote is the result of actual ink-spread on paper, captured in scans of the written letter­forms and left intact during production to pre­serve that feeling. Under the hood, the texture was care­fully edited by hand, elimi­nat­ing outline errors and keep­ing the point count low for optimal performance. Rest assured; these fonts are crafted to the highest industry standards.

Sketchnote Text is intended for use at smaller sizes, for longer bits of copy in maga­zines, books, and websites. Sketchnote Square is best used at larger sizes for head­lines, titles, packaging, etc. Use them to­gether for a con­sist­ent style or paired with other typefaces. Either way, Sketchnote is great for a variety of projects where a hand­crafted aesthetic and ease-of-use are desired.
