I’m pretty sure I haven’t mentioned this in a blog post before (with the exception of my About Me page), but did you know that I create free handwritten fonts?
They aren’t the best, but a while back I decided to get a graphics tablet and make a few handwritten fonts. I’d completely forgotten about them, until I checked my DaFont page a while ago and realised that the 5 fonts I uploaded had 41,734 downloads! Pretty cool huh?
I definitely want to work on creating more handwritten fonts, and improving the quality of them – I’m not an expert yet, but these are a start!
La Carmella is the first font I made, using a pen and paper with MyScriptFont (which anyone can use for free!). The process of doing this is easy, but I prefer making my own fonts with a graphics tablet, because you can tweak and perfect them!
LC Look With Your Heart is a cute Valentine’s-themed font with little hearts drawn around the letters. This is the most popular font I’ve made – it’s had 20,715 downloads so far!
LC Daisy is a simple handwritten font with a cute little daisy on the ~ key! The ‘LC’ in these fonts stands for La Carmella, because that’s what my old blog name used to be!
LC Scribbles was definitely the most fun to make! It’s a messy handwriting, similar to many other fonts, but I wanted to create my own version!
The fifth font I’ve uploaded is a font I made out of my little brother’s handwriting! It’s called Ned’s Writing, we made it because he wanted to have a go! I’ve made around 4 other fonts that I haven’t uploaded yet because I’m still improving them, but I thought I’d share the ones that have been lingering on my DaFont page since 2013! You can head over there to download them for free.
