FONT RECOGNITION VIA FONT MOOSE

ABOUT







Fontcapture [Håkon Bertheussen]

Launched at the end of August 2009 by Håkon Bertheussen, this was a truly free font generation service---the users own the generated fonts, and there are no commercial interests behind the scenes. Some minor improvements are being implemented. It looked and felt like the popular YourFonts, which is not free. Håkon Bertheussen is a design engineer at Atmel, Trondheim, Norway. He runs Bertheussen IT. A list of examples of fonts made with Fontcapture.

Update in May 2010: Amazingly, Fontcapture is now being redirected to Yourfonts (where one has to pay 10 dollars for the same service). Maybe Fontcapture became too popular. But the redirection makes me think that Bertheussen could be bought after all. So here is an opportunity for hackers: imitate the Fontcapture experiment, offer a free service for a year, and then cash in.
