Fun with handwriting

I had some fun yesterday with calligraphr.com after I decided to try to put my writing into a font – the object is to make something personal but legible, because my hands get tired with all the Explain Everything things I create that have lots of writing in them (plus my writing is rubbish and anyway, I type faster than I write, at least if I want to be able to read it. I feel for my students! And so I popped over tot he site, downloaded templates, opened them up in Explain Everything, wrote the letters, numbers, symbols and ligatures and so on, saved back to a pdf and uploaded the results to calligraphr. A few seconds later and I have my own font! It’s still a little rough around the edges but as you can see from the image above, it’s quite legible (I should post an image of my proper handwriting to prove it!). I installed on my Mac and iOS devices (I used iFont for iOS) but I imagine it would be easy elsewhere too. Only trouble is, not for Google Docs or other similar online tools… But I don’t use them unless I have to anyway… I had a great deal of fun in the process, which took around an hour, and I learnt a lot about fonts (not that you can tell from this one) and am sitting down to more properly create one on calligraphr, with, possibly, a more complex method of font creation later. Whatever, this is pretty neat…

For example…

Not that I expect you to, but you can download the font here!
