Typism: Build your own fonts

Category: Showcase, SVG

Juraj Sukop has created a fun project called Typism that lets you build fonts on the Web:

typism is a web-based font editor. It is a public site where anyone can create a font for others to use and to study, to modify and to copy. You write the description of a typeface, design the outlines of a glyph, track the development history and publish any revision in human-readable format to store locally. All it takes to run it is a browser supporting a few open standards.

Typism uses SVG (We don’t JUST love Canvas ;) and runs on Google App Engine. The project is open source too so you can check it all out!
