The heart of FontStruct is the FontStructor, a web-application that lets anyone quickly and easily build fonts using basic geometric shapes in a grid. Fonts created with the FontStructor are called FontStructions. And what is important: They can be downloaded as TrueType fonts and used in Mac or Windows operating systems and in their applications.A few examples
FontStruct is not just a tool – it is a vibrant online type-design community as well. Type-design enthusiasts from all over the world use the FontStructor to experiment with letter shapes and to design fonts. For non-FontStructors, FontStruct is a source of fresh fonts available under flexible, liberal CreativeCommons licenses.
But that is not all. For educators the FontStruct is an ideal environment to teach the basics of type design. The brick principle and the simplified, easy-to-use interface of the FontStructor help students to overcome the complexity inherent to type-design and focus on the most important aspects.What you should know...
