A font based on my handwriting. This took ages to make (but was a good relaxant from all my studies cuz now is exam period >.<). It came as a surprise how grotesque my handwriting was -- in all meanings of the word. BTW (in case you didn't know) the name is derived from the word 'ambidextrous'.


Nice work, and cool handwriting. A shed load better than mine these days.

This is really cool. I keep thinking I should do something like this, but then I remember how awful my actual handwriting is.
Comment by aphoria 25th september 2010

@Upixel: Thanks!! Yeah I'm working on the complete Basic Latin set (hopefully it doesn't kill the FontMortar!!!) :D

Finally LC is done. Now onto numbers and punct.
Comment by 3moDuDe 30th september 2010
Very effective and lively handwriting font. Nice work! With the rest of the basic set done, it will be highly usable. Love the name.

Great great real handmade font. 10/10. Would you add dot, comma and other signs for us later, please?
Comment by elmoyenique 1st october 2010

Great work
Comment by naveenchandru 4th october 2010
@will, elmoyenique, naveen: Thanks so much!! :D I will definitely complete it!
@dan1010: Hahaha...truth is, I manually laid brick by brick until it matched (roughly) my handwriting. All I had was a pixelized guide and a trusty sheet of my penmanship to help me. :)
Comment by 3moDuDe 5th october 2010
A thoroughly thought through sample.
Comment by 3moDuDe 8th october 2010
The full ode:

An Ode to FontStruct

A blank grid of squares,
A vast, empty zone;
Creativity comes,
Ent’ring the unknown.

Then brick by brick,
The tower is grown;
Glyphs will emerge
From many seeds sown.

Selecting, erasing,
Stacks like a drone;
Filling the space with
Sounds of a trombone.

“More Latin!” they cried,
All singing in tone;
The mighty pencil
Zooming like a cyclone.

Perfection will come
Like glass being blown;
When dust has been settled
Emerges a throne.

The font has arrived,
Let this news be known;
A magnificent product,
A win cast in stone.

Awesome! I am trying to do my own and am on the verge of tears! Any tutorial for this? :)
Comment by suzieadina 28th march 2012
One of the best handwriting fonts I've seen! The sample text looks very natural. 10/10
Comment by V. Sarela (Yautja) 28th march 2012
@Yautja : and what you might not know because you weren't there then, is that 3moDuDe was only 14 years old and made amazingly mature fonts. We were all impressed.
Comment by Abneurone Fluid Types 28th march 2012
@ne I think I saw mentioned that in a comment, very impressive.
Comment by V. Sarela (Yautja) 28th march 2012
*saw that mentioned
Comment by V. Sarela (Yautja) 28th march 2012
@Yautja, ne: Thanks for the comments!(: It is quite a pity that I'm not able to be on FS much now because of schoolwork though D:
Comment by 3moDuDe 28th march 2012
@3moDuDe: Schoolwork is for now ... design is for life. So plenty of time to express your talents in the future. :)
Comment by p2pnut 28th march 2012
Some of the best font I've seen, and I'm just realized that it was made by a 14-years-old kid (really?) AWESOME :O
Comment by cablecomputer 29th march 2012

This is gorgeous!

Comment by Luci Types™ 8th june 2017

Just saw this mentioned and want to say that I am impressed by the skill shown in this handwritten font by a 14year old who created such an intelligent well-crafted 'natural' design ... and great poem :)
