Handmadefont believes good ideas can be applied to anything. Even if it’s a slice of bacon, a piece of bread, a handful of seeds or a dozen of eggs it has all chances to become a fabulous typeface.
That’s why in 2008 two brothers Vladimir and Maksim Loginov founded an Estonian-based company called Handmadefont. Back then neither the font industry was that well developed, nor the term ‘handmadefont’ itself was known. People used to consider fonts as keyable raster images. They suggested a new angle: fonts can be made of what-so-ever.
They started with developing selfmade fonts from some funny everyday life objects and ended up with loads of new fonts. On Handmadefont web page you can find more than 1000 unique handcrafted fonts and animated alphabets.
