Typography is one of the most important design elements in a website; it sets the tone and can make or break the whole design. When choosing a font, there are hundreds of databases at your fingertips online. You can opt for a popular, reliable choice such as Helvetica, Rockwell or Future. Or you can scour the web for a new, unknown typeface. But have you ever considered creating your own?
Hand drawn fonts have the possibility of being richly specific and profoundly beautiful. This style allows for complete customization to fit the style and parameters of your web design. Here are just a few of great examples of hand lettering on the web.
