I’ve seen some crazy web tool sites in the past, but this one takes the cake. Fontstruct is everything that’s good about competitive design constraints, and none of the scary pricing which plagues most of the font world (with the exception of dafont). Let me put this in bold: Fonts have never been this exciting.

  • Fonts are creative commons by default. The site is already designed for you to clone someone else’s font, make additions or changes, and resubmit it as your own.
  • The font building tool is impressively good for making contemporary typefaces. Really creative people have even made contemporary twists on traditional fonts as a byproduct of the strange building tools provided with excitingly fresh results.
  • Once you’re done building, FontStruct generates high-quality TrueType fonts, ready to use in any Mac or Windows application.
