If you’re like me, you enjoy creating new fonts, and downloading neat ones you find on the Web. I used to be very addicted to them. I don’t download them half as much as I used to. I even remember way back in the day when I used to create fonts for DOS. I even created the FigLet Font. Well, now you can create your own cool fonts… for free!

If you head over to FontStruct, you can create, download and share your own fonts. FontStruct is a free font-building tool brought to you by the world’s leading retailer of digital type, FontShop. FontStruct lets you quickly and easily create fonts constructed out of geometrical shapes, which are arranged in a grid pattern, like tiles or bricks. Once you’re done building, FontStruct generates high-quality TrueType fonts, ready to use in any Mac or Windows application. You can keep your creations to yourself, or share your “FontStructions”. Explore the Gallery of fonts made by other FontStruct users and download them or even copy them and make your own variations.

Go ahead! Make your own cool fonts, and send us a link to check them out. We’re interested in taking a look at what you come up with! My email address is [email protected] or you can leave a follow-up comment to this post here on the blog.
