About the typeface

I created this font entirely in the extremely fun and useful iPad app; iFontMaker. I was surprised how easy it was to actually create a new font. At the same time, how hard it is to actually keep true to your own handwriting (witch isn’t very stylish, I know).

To actually make a typeface I combined the Regular and the Bold weight fonts into one file with Fontographer. And finally I used Cufon to convert MyHand to a .js file for use online.
