Of course, we don’t run all those fonts at the same time, but thanks to font manager apps like Typeface we can own thousands of fonts and use only what we want when we need to. But fonts are not designs, and graphic designs require fonts to be manipulated, and that’s what Letters does.
3 Or 33 Steps
One thing I’ve noticed about digital graphic designers through the years is the penchant for trial and error. They’re much better at finding the sweet spot in a design than the rest of us, but if you want to turn some text into a graphic design, well, that’s what Letters does in about three steps.
Or, about 33 steps. Let me explain. First, select a design. There are plenty.
Each design can be customized with different background colors, different fonts, different sizes, and text is easily changed to whatever you want it to be.
Tools to make changes are simple and straightforward. You get more text options than you can imagine for an app that starts out free.
• Photorealistic 3D
• Watercolor & Aquarelle
• Retro & Vintage
• Photo Filters with Captions
• Social Media Graphics
• Brush & Chalk Effects
• 2D Calligraphy
• Neon & Glowing Effects
Sweet, right? OK, ready for the second step? Well, you’re already there.
Once you’ve selected a style you’re in edit mode and that means customization with all the aforementioned options.
Once your text image has become a graphic design what do you do with it?
That’s the third step. Move it. Save it. Export it. Even share it.
There is not much to not like about a Mac application that can take fonts and turn them into graphic designs. For free. Letters is developed by one of Mac360’s favorite app developers– BeLight Soft, with many additional Mac design tools.
Letters is free from the Mac App Store. Additional design sets are a mere $6.00. For what it does for the average designer, this is a bargain.
