Fonstruct: The Democratization of Type

Online tools are becoming more ubiquitous, but more importantly, quite useful. FontShop has teamed up with Rob Meek (über type geek) and created an online font building application.

FontStruct makes designing, downloading and sharing fonts a snap. Simply choose different block shapes and grid sizes to build out all the glyphs commonly found in commercially produced fonts.

My first stab at a font using the tool is Madeline (today was her birthday!). The font is a contemporary digital sans serif display font. There are 98 glyphs including numerals, punctuation and lowercase letters.
