My Font

I found this great free online font generation service via Mark Cardwell's Bad Librarianship blog. I'd been thinking I'd like to have a go at getting my own block capitals done as a font... Well I think there's a lot more potential than simply that with this fab online service.

I got this workable truetype font as an almost instantaneous result of uploading a template page and pressing a button. I know there are some problems with a bit of the kerning, but with a bit of fiddling, I think you could get a great font as a result.

I don't normally big-up things like this, but this one was relevent and useful to me.

what a great free service! Why the two sets of letters sir...? Are they narrow or for 'natural handwritten variety'...? Whatever, like it (nice touch with the symbols too! Maybe a little Kev avatar in there...? PS. RE last post, who is playing the new Judge Dredd...? Maybe you could play around with your treatments for the movie poster...?
