Iím learning more each time. Hope you like the demo :)

Before I start, let me say that this is by no means the only way to make a hand drawn font. Ever since I began giving away fonts, Iíve had many requests for me to write a tutorial on my font making process, so here it is. This is how I do it, and depending on your responses, I can go deeper into a FontLab Studio tutorial. This tutorial, however, is designed to reveal my process from start to finish. A lot of you may not have FontLab Studio, so you may need to adapt the second half of the tutorial to whatever font software you may have access to. Here we go.

I almost forgot I had this font laying around. Itís called 23rd Street, and itís another free demo version font for everyone to download. Itís not my best font, but itís still a font. I just started a big project, so Iíll get on those vectors in a couple days. Iíve also been listening to all of the comments about a portfolio wordpress theme, and I think I might be able to come up with something sufficient. Time will tell. Hope you like the font.

Once again I went through Deviantart and found some great freebies, this time fonts, fonts that you may not even seen before and yes they are really good, check it out yourself, use and abuse them. I wanted to provide the link to download the fonts but I think it's better if you go to the authors page and download it from there, that way you can check out more stuff from the author and give him the credits deserved. To download click on the font you like and the download link will be in the menu on your left hand side.

CSS has brought us many capabilities in terms of typography and the web, but we always seem to be limited to the same 4-5 typefaces over and over again. There is an inherant problem, if the font you specify isnít on the viewers computer it wonít render in that font. So as designers and developers we end up selecting the ones that we can safely assume is available on most computers today. So most pages use Arial, Helvetica, or Georgia as their typefacesÖ and the world of the web remains slightly more bland. But there are quite a few high quality typefaces that are available on most new computer systems and you can always fall back on the common ones. Of course there are options like creating images, dynamic headlines, and siFRÖ but all of these techniques increase load time and development time. There are plenty of good reasons to be strategic in the font choices rather than using additional technology. I am shocked at how rarely I see anyone taking advantage of these type options, so here is a quick and dirty list of fonts you should and could use in your desgns and stylesheets.
