An attempt at visitor content.

I remember a long time ago, I opened a site with visitor content. Or at least that was my intention. I never did. As I’m noticing on rev.iew.me, it’s a good thing that I didn’t, because I don’t think I’m that good in what I do. To this day, I create graphics that not many people will see because I won’t open up a visitor section on Crestfallen, nor will I open a goodies site either. Besides, you know what they say–stick with what you know. I’m not graphically inclined, but it doesn’t hurt to at least try, right? But that’s not my strength.

As I posted on the last entry, I’ve opened up Illustrator more often than I did Sims 2 and Perfect World combined the past week. Please keep in mind that Sims 2 is my old-time addiction, and Perfect World is creeping right behind it (so much so that now I somehow forget the controls on Sims 2!). I’ve worked with it a few times before this, but I was never able to get it. Bah, that just meant I didn’t experiment enough. I’ve went on to post my “experiments” on my DA. Yes, boredom has done this to me. Not only that, but a resilient case of seasonal depression, which the peak of coincides with the impending approach of Cupid’s Day of Pink-Shitting[1. A.K.A. V-***], is kicking my ass. So this is my way of trying to distract myself from loneliness. Who knew?

Anyway, apparently quite a few liked the fonts that I posted in the last entry. So I’m doing the one thing that I may never do again after this creativity streak wanes–offering them for download.

Ardent: This was my second font that I created. The period is actually in the middle, which wasn’t noticed until it was printed. Oh, shit. Well, it gives it its…uniqueness. Download Ardent

lovesample

Love!: There are two versions to this, but I’m partial to the first one. I am still kicking myself in the head for deleting the .ai for editing this. Download Love! V.1

musicalscribblessample

Musical Scribbles: Just made this one since the last entry. Unlike the other two, there aren’t any accents, but unlike the other two, there are a few extra “musical scribbles” in place of some characters, such as the trademark and pound. Inspired by downtempo music and past doodles. Download Musical Scribbles

I hope that this spark of insane creativity does not go away–I very much enjoy doing fonts. More so than coding layouts. Which I need to change. Which I’m scared to change. Oh, the drama!

  1. I’ve always wanted to try making a font but didn’t know how to go about doing it. Those are pretty great. I especially like the first one!

  2. I LOVE the Musical Scribbles font! (Well that’s obvious). And you don’t have to put user content on your site, it’s entirely up to you, and I’d visit you either way. You’re ma petit cherie, oui oui…

  3. I really like the first one and the last. I may have to download them. I agree with Kaylee – fonts make great visitor content!
