MarcusFont2

Remember my hand-drawn typeface – MarcusFont? Probably not… but I won’t hold it against you because I’m happy to announce it’s been upgraded.

I’ve just added a load of new glyphs (including the much ñéêdëd åccented characters!)

I didn’t realise how much it needed an upgrade until I started using it on here as a webfont, but now it’s got all the extra characters it’s a much more complete font and guess what – because I’m so super duper excited, you can download MarcusFont2 here for free!

(personal use only please – drop me a line if you want to use it for any commercial projects)

The other night I quickly threw together this website showcasing my new fonts with download links for personal use. I posted it on Reddit before I went to sleep thinking nothing of it (as my posts don’t usually fare too well).

The next morning I was shocked! My post was getting popular, so much so that it not only reached the front page of /r/graphic_design, but it was actually the top link for a while.

This morning, I wasted no time (apart from taking a picture of a leaking radiator valve for my landlord) in checking the stats for yesterday’s visitor count on Google Analytics. Two thousand visitors!

That put a smile on my face.

That, and this:
