Fonts, Handmade from Photos


Would it be dramatic of us to say our font choice is a privileged glimpse into our soul?

Yes. Yes, it would.

But, we can all agree that choosing a font is pretty important.

It’s kind of like picking out a car or choosing an outfit for a first date  (so, we’ll be staying faaaar away from Comic Sans AKA the poofy bride dress of fonts).

Lucky for us, two camera-happy brothers at HandMadeFont took on the challenge of merging the two things we love to stare at all day long: photos and fonts.

Maksim and Vladmir had the brilliant idea to cut letters out of bread, toast those letters, photograph them, and make them into a font!

BUT THEY DIDN’T STOP THERE. These crafty bros went onto photograph and font-ify caviar, shattered glass, smoke, and donuts! (and more!)
