Ever want to write something in your own handwriting, but not actually have to hand write it? Me too. I type much faster than I write. This site can create a font in OpenType or TrueType format of your handwriting for free. All you have to do is download a form, provide your handwriting sample, and upload it.
Adobe, in partnership with Google, is pleased to announce the release of Source Han Sans, a new open source Pan-CJK typeface family that is now available on Typekit for desktop use.
Source Han Sans, available in seven weights, is a typeface family which provides full support for Japanese, Korean, Traditional Chinese, and Simplified Chinese, all in one font. All told, each font weight in the family has a total of 65,535 glyphs (the maximum supported in the OpenType format), and the entire family rounds out at just under half a million total glyphs.
This is awesome for designers who must work with multi-language files. The font is available for all Creative Cloud users (including free subscription users).
Reckoner font is free for commercial use and includes a regular and bold face, plus some special characters. It’s an all-caps font, so you’re pretty much limited to headlines and logo type, but it looks great.
