ABOUT







Fontifier

Fontifier is a 9USD handwriting font service (was free for its first month only) by David Johnson-Davies, who runs Human-Computer Interface Ltd in Cambridge, UK. One submits a GIF-format scan of a properly filled out template. Fontifier then analyzes a sample of each letter of the GIF version of the template, and constructs a character outline. The result is a standard truetype font. Comments at Typographica. Heinrich Lipschka reports that it made a grunge font from Noga. It sure looks like the low dpi requested (75 to 100) leads to jaggies and a severe loss of information. List of fonts made with this software. Fontifier tips.
