Conglomerfont: A Community-Created Free Font Project – Calling all Creatives

by Jay Hilgert
on September 29, 2008

This is a project I’ve started here at BittBox as a community effort to create a free font so that everyone who’s willing can have a hand in the creation process. It will be a 100% free typeface, and anyone who wants to help can design a character/letter of their choosing. Let’s make history :) !!!!!

Community Created Free Font Project

This is how it works:

Below, you’ll find a few tables with all of the characters slated to be a part of this community-created font. Items marked with an “X” have already been accounted for, everything else is free game. People (everyone besides me) can choose a character that they want to design, create a hand-drawn character, and email it to me in jpeg or tiff format to jhilgert00(at)gmail.com. I will then use my software (Font Lab Studio) and create a font from all of the individual submitted characters, and I’ll give it away for free, right here on BittBox. Bookmark this page if your are interested in contributing, I will be updating the list of characters often.

I can’t guarantee that your character will be used because there will likely be multiple submissions for the same character in between the time I update this page, but don’t worry, this is only the first of many BittBox Community Fonts.

Each person who submits a character used in the font will get credit, as well as a link. When the font is complete and I make the post to give it away, I will include the tables below in that post, with each character, it’s creator, and a link for each contributor, as a credit to everyone who participated. So, if you submit, please make sure to clearly state what name and URL you want included in the credits for the font in your email.

For this first run, I’m only including uppercase, lowercase, and 0-9. If the project goes well, we can expand the character set with the next community font :)
