Fontin’ Awesome.

This afternoon, as I was scanning Mashable, I happened upon something amazing. Have you ever made your own font?

I don’t mean tweak a serif here-and-there, or change the color or style, I mean really create. A. Font. From. Scratch.

It’s not easy, it’s not fun. Okay, the finished product is always fun, and amazing, and totally worth the struggle. But what if there didn’t have to be a struggle?

Check this out: http://mashable.com/2014/05/04/prototypo-fonts/

It’s a web app that will let you actually tweak a font, from individual letters, to the baseline, to entire words. Bow down to awesomeness, and fork over the $25, because I think a creation like this will really change things for artists everywhere. It’s like its own kind of Headache-B-Gone. Bring on the fonts.
