DESIGN IT: CELTIC PATTERNS
Create your own digital handwriting font.
BY NATALIE ZEE DRIEU
In my youth, I loved everything about the art of writing, spending hours improving my handwriting and even learning
the art of calligraphy. Even today, I have nice penmanship,
but oftentimes jotting down a quick note ends up as an illegible
nightmare. I’m out of practice! Like most people these days,
I spend way too much time typing on a keyboard rather than
writing with a pen. But we are living in the digital world, right?
Enter the Fontifier (
fontifier.com), where you can create a digital
typeface from your own handwriting. For $9, you’ll be able to add
a personal touch to your digital photos and craft projects without
lifting a pen. I’ll be the first to admit my handwriting is no art
form, like others I know, but it’s mine with its own special curves
