Prototypo | Streamlining Font Creation

Picking the perfect typeface for your creation can be hard work — there are thousands of fonts out there, each with their own unique look and feel to choose from. Expand your search beyond those readily available online and you’ll find typographers handcrafting unique fonts for each job – some even willing to make unique typefaces based off your own handwriting. Whether you’re a graphic designer, typographer, or a connoisseur of the perfect typeface for your blog, word doc, or other project it’s clear you can appreciate all the hard work goes into creating just the right look and feel for the job. But what can those of us who desire to create our own typefaces for projects, but aren’t skilled typographers and there isn’t room for a custom font in the budget do? Enter Prototypo!

    It’s true there are thousands of fonts out there however you have to take into consideration the fact that not all of those fonts can be read by browsers or can be used when building sites as the fonts that can only be used are already specified by certain templates/available can be used designs especially for WP
