What's so unique about Fontself?

Fontself unleashes creativity

Our tools are also meant for the creatives who don't necessarily constrain their artwork to black or white. Their lettering can be colorful, their sketches have a certain grain.

We leverage the latest color font technologies to let you make any type of fonts. Because we  deeply believe that the more people experiment font creation, the more they will pay attention to the typographic choices around them, and the more they will appreciate the exceptional amount of work, dedication & talent that professional type-making requires.

Fontself is democratizing type-making

We aim to open the gates of font creation to a broad audience of creatives, graphic designers, art directors, illustrators, enthusiasts, students and educators.

How? By simplifying the type-making process to its simplest form, right within the most common creative apps: Adobe’s Photoshop & Illustrator. Millions of creatives around the world could now just start making their own fonts.

And now, what's next?

We are currently working on more cool new features for this tool. So if you purchase Fontself Maker now, here is what you will be able to enjoy as part of our FREE updates:

- Ligatures (because many can't live without them)

- Alternates (because glyphs deserve the right to be different too)

Our journey started back in 2006. We had several attempts along the years, but in 2015 something really cool happened: 760 Kickstarter backers decided we should keep working and ship some of the cool prototypes we'd built.

We are now dedicated to crafting creative tools that any creative can use.
