Take Charge is a font that goes above and beyond a typical font. Using OpenType-SVG technology, this font preserves all of the detail of the original hand painted letters. It truly looks realistic, and the difference compared to regular vector fonts is staggering. 285 characters were hand painted dozens of times in order to get the perfect results. It works fantastic for banners, quotes, social media posts, book covers, magazine ads and all sorts of branding. Take Charge and buy this font today!
So how does it work? Instead of vectorizing the letters, Take Charge uses actual images and transparency effects in order to get the quality that you see. This is all made possible thanks to the latest developments of the OpenType-SVG format, and the integration of that technology into Photoshop CC 2017. Take Charge installs like any other font, and can be used in any color, on any background. Check out the example video to see everything this font can do!
OpenType-SVG Font – This is the main font file containing all the hyper realistic effects.
Regular Font (TTF/OTF) – This is the same font, but a vectorized version, so the texture will look different. This is a great traditional option for use in other programs, including earlier versions of Photoshop. This version is also great for blocks of text and small print.
Alternate Characters – Each lowercase character has an alternate version available, so that you always have options when putting together your text. There are also many extra alternates added in that are designed to be placed at the end of the word (sometimes referred to as terminal ligatures).
Brushes – Each character in the OpenType-SVG font is also available as a brush. These brushes are great for users who cannot use the OpenType-SVG font, but want to get the exact same end results.
Swashes/Splatter Brushes – We’ve also included a bunch of underlines and splatters to help spice up your designs.
Extra Video Tutorial – Learn how I added in the dynamic colors in the main image with a video tutorial, and get an explanation of the tools I used in the process.
You need to be using Photoshop CC 2017.1.1 or later in order for the OpenType-SVG font to work.
Don’t have the latest Photoshop? You still have options! Each letter is also available as a Photoshop brush. Load these brushes into any version of Photoshop, and form your words with all the same detail offered by the OpenType-SVG font. Also, we’ve included a vector version of the font.
Supported Languages – French, Spanish, English, Catalan, Galician, Basque, Portuguese, Italian, Albanian, Afrikaans, Dutch, German, Danish, Swedish, Norwegian, Finnish, Faroese, Icelandic, Irish, Scottish and many more!
