Happy Holidays 2014

Dear FontStructors,

Thanks to all of you who have built, discussed, shared and downloaded on FontStruct this year. It’s been another fantastic year on the grid with the two competitions, “Inline” and “Game” as a couple of the biggest highlights.

A special end-of-year thanks to our main and founding sponsor FontShop who continued to support the site and keep our services free in 2014. FontShop have also already committed to keeping the bricks piled high through 2015. Thank you FontShop! In case you haven’t noticed, they launched their amazing next generation site this month. Even if you’re not looking to purchase a font right now, it’s a must-see if you have any interest in typography and design.

We’d also like to thank GlyphsApp who continue to sponsor support for the Glyphs export feature, allowing users to easily transfer their designs to the leading desktop font editor (Mac only). In Glyphs you can do the kind of detailed editing and tweaking of your fonts that FontStruct itself is not yet capable of.

As a small seasonal gift to FontStructors we’re releasing a new set of bricks today – a kind of fin/thorn shape which has been requested several times in the unofficial forum:

thorn-bricks

I’m looking forward to 2015 when we hope to gradually introduce more substantial improvements to the site and the editor.

Until then, Happy Holidays everyone!

    And so can’t I, because they don’t appear in the FontStructor.

    Doesn’t meek have to give credit to the people who made the fonts in his samples? :/
