SuperFont meets the modern age!!!
This program allowed the user to edit characters of the font in the checker board area and then save out the font to be loaded into a program later.
So you can imagine my delight when I stumbled across iFontMaker for the iPad. How I ever got along without such an excellent font editing tool for so long is beyond me. This program has everything you need to quickly make a font, upload it to their ttf converter, share it with everyone etc. Infact today I created a font for an 'art test' I am doing for a potential employer.
I based my font off light bulbs that make up letters as in an older marquee but it really look very dot-matrix like when you look at it in a smaller printout. Feel free to look at the 2ttf webpage of it, Download & use it if you like. Uploading a font is not only easy, but it is a requirement in 2ttf's conversion process to make it usable. This promotes sharing which I like.
Learn the craft of font making. It's a real joy !
