The winners of Love Letter Contest at #Digiversity have been announced!

The Love Letter Contest was launched on June 20 as a part of the Type Your Heart Out event at #Digiversity. 24 people took part with 28 entries.

:winner: The winning entry is

K by :iconcheesygfx:

A rather simple design but with lots of photoshopesk effects. The script/italic letter itself features very striking overall proportions and expressive strokes. However the right bottom leg seems a little short which affects the undershoot of the letter negatively. Also the stroke endings could have been executed with more passion and expression. However this is still a very solid piece of design and I would love to see this taken further – maybe even a complete typeface.

Congratulations to every winner!

Hi there :)

As a group that features fonts I thought you would like to hear that the Stock & Resources > Fonts gallery has recently been updated on dA.

You can find a journal explaining the changes here [link]

It would be awesome if you could help spread the news and, if time allows you, move your own deviations according to the new structure. I will help move miscats myself but any help is welcome :la:

Thank you :peace: :heart:

Hello, give me some love and like the advent font facebook page please!
Despite the numerous downloads the facebook page is almost dead, that makes me sad :/

Merry XMAS!

Does anyone here accept font requests?
adventfont Featured By Owner Dec 19, 2011
I think you are the guy who requested that from me long time ago, still looking for that looney tunes font?
LooneyTunerIan Featured By Owner Dec 19, 2011  Hobbyist Filmographer
Well, more or less, yes.

But I have a font-like sprite sheet for one: [link]

You realize that is not easy to design a font right? And if that is true, may i ask, what is the offer? This is a thing that needs atleast 100 - 200 hours. Maybe someone here is available for freelance work if you can cover their expenses? 100 x 15$ lets make it cheap right? So for a font that has Capitals and small letter i think someone here could do it for 1500$ so i propose that you create a competition with that price money. Maybe you can even convince someone to do it for 1000$. Good luck :)
