I was randomly looking around at fonts.

This, by itself, isn’t too odd for me. I’ve had a love affair with type for as long as I can remember. The first time I really started to look at typefaces in detail was in my graphic arts class at Cleveland Heights High. Ever since then I’ve occasionally done some hand lettering for fun.

Anyway… I was looking at fonts…

One caught my eye and I’m trying to find a use for it.

Skitch.

It’s a well thought out, legible, hand-drawn font. It has some cool bits that if you have two of the same letter next to each other you get a “ligature” of sorts with slightly different character forms to preserve the illusion that it’s really hand-drawn.

I don’t know what I want to do with it, but somehow I think I want to use it for something. It has a certain panache to it.

I’m still working on the blog here, but I don’t think an organic type like that would work here.

That’s the cool thing. While I don’t know what I want to do with it, I want to do something with it… which makes me think outside of my own box!
