Beatnic font

By Nic Price on 12 July 2010 — 1 min read

I made a font based on my handwriting for use in my digital sketches and e-learning.

Here’s a sample:

A sample of the Beatnic 0.5 handwriting font

It’s rough and ready, a little uneven on the baseline, and limited to A-Z caps and lower case, plus numbers 0-9 and a few other characters – but quite handy for keeping things looking sketchy. (At some point I’ll make a more comprehensive version.)

It’s in a zip file. You’ll need to unzip it and install it in your computer’s font directory.

If you use it, let me know 🙂

  • Hi James – I like how you use your font on your site. Free tool from Microsoft? Does it still exist? I suppose it’s now turned in to an iPad app 🙂

    I used

    You get a template to write the letters on, which you then scan and upload to their website. Then it’s available for preview and download within an hour. Costs $10.

    (I really must get round to signing up for their affiliates programme!)

  • Hi Richard, great stuff! Hope it comes in handy.

    I’ve found it works well for back of the napkin sketches (using a photo of a napkin, and using a Wacom tablet to sketch and build up a story), and also on post-its I made in PowerPoint and/or Keynote.
