Fonts - Numbers

I needed a good font for my project but I couldn't find anything that fit so I made these.

I liked them so I thought I'd share what I've got done so far. I don't need the alphabet but I might make them anyways because it's pretty fun.

Thoughts? Suggestions?

Hail Cybermike!

These samples are magnificent. I would desire this font upon its completion. I have often dreamed of making my own fonts but have never attempted it. I confess ignorance to the Kung Fu of font creation. Is there a process that I could benefit from knowing? I want to make an intestinal font.

I would enjoy knowing more about your font work.

Typography 2 final was to design an original font. Instructor kept mine as an example:

Giant: it's really not that hard, but, in this case, was time-consuming. Done in Illustrator, I used a basic bold font (arial bold, if I remember correctly), took outlines, made strokes of them, then manipulated the shapes. Finally, I created a pattern brush of denim, filled them in and added some 'wrinkle lines'. Now I just need 'Fontagrapher' to make the individual letters usable as a font!

is there anything else other than fontographer (that might be readily available) for anyone wanting to make fonts? i too have been DYING to make fonts for at least 6 years. it's a wonder i'm not dead yet.

i once made a font of logs. i'll have to see if i can track it down.

Cool fonts Ngdawg and doodlebird

The shadow is just a little touchup. Plain fonts are.. well plain I'll attach a shadowless pic.

GH, I used flash MX because its easier and faster to manipulate all the curves than it would be in photoshop, and because It's the program that I started with.

I started out with the rounded part on the three. It reminded me of shrek's ear and I could picture it as a cartoon horn going "ooga ooga!" but it didn't look childish which I liked...
