This is a corner of the site that shows how to use Fontgrapher to modify fonts that you have rights to and create a new font form your own handwriting. In the section on creating a font from your won handwriting I will use the font used in the web comic XKCD, which the author has placed on the web and has copyrighted it as creative commons. Also in this section is an interview with the author of XKCD on the TWiT.tv podcast Triangulation where the font is discussed and will give some background into the font, and why some choices are made the why they where in the actual design.
About Steven and Fonts.
The use of fonts express many things and sometimes the font is simply close to what we had in mind, but not close enough. Many companies purchase fonts or contract for them to be built. Then a few years later the font starts to not look current, and that could be that it has a few characters that looked great then, but now show too much rust. Then in other cases there are missing characters that are now missing as the company be comes more international, for example there is now a need for an é and an ç.
