'A Letter to your shrink' is about creating a font based on Sigmund Freud's handwritten letters. Read more
This project was successfully funded on May 8, 2013.
I wanted to keep you updated and share this article I wrote for Smashing Magazine about the creation of a handwriting font exemplary on the Sigmund Freud typeface. I thought some of you might be interested in this and I would love to hear your feedback about this. This is actually the first article I ever published and I am very excited about it!
Please comment here or directly on Smashing Magazine.
Looking at my desk you can see that I am working on shipping out the handwritten Thank You cards, which were included with some rewards. It was a great joy (and a lot more work than expected) to create them. Here you can see a video of Thank You #72 in the making:
The Posters and Letters from Vienna are still in the making (sorry for that delay).
I wanted to keep you updated on the latest news and next steps of the project.
Hooray! On the 23rd December the Sigmund Freud Typeface was officially released on MyFonts:
What does that mean for me as a Backer of this project? Some backers were interested in using the Sigmund Freud Typeface on your website or blog. This is possible through WebFonts and the cooperation with MyFonts. WebFont is not jet available, but I was told it should be in the first half of January. Further the font will be available as a server and app license – so developers and designers can license the font to use the Sigmund Freud Typeface in apps. Exciting!
I will update you on the progress. If you are interested in using the font on your website but have not optioned for the WebFont — don't worry — I will think of something ;)
Until the second half of January I will be happy and busy with my current typographic Kickstarter campaign:
It is about creating a huge wall calendar made of 2014 used keyboard keys that I dreamed of. Below you will find some pictures of the rewards and read more about it here:
