Here’s a neat little site for ya-
Fontstruct is a flash based website that allows you to create your own fonts. It’s pretty cool and has a really easy to use interface. You select different patterns to “paint” onto a grid and you basically just go hard drawing out each letter of the alphabet one by one.
That’s my only real complaint with the site. It would take FOREVER to make any half decent fonts. In fact, it took me almost three hours to make THIS. It would be nice if they had some more guidelines too. My letters got bigger as I went along and then smaller again as I started to notice. It took me so long to get that far that I never bothered to go back and fix them. Screw that. I LIKE THEM THAT WAY.
Perhaps this speaks more of my lack of patience than anything else…
Once you’ve designed your font you are free to download it as a .ttf and use the heck out of it! HOORAY! Overall a pretty neat setup. Definitely worth checking out if your one of those artsy types who likes calligraphy.
