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.
100% indy software
Hello, we are 3 guys with a simple goal: to bring you the most user-friendly font creation tools. Yep, 'cause self-expression rules !!! ✊
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.
Oh, if you make some really cool stuff with Fontself Maker, we’d love to see it & share it with the community. So feel free to
