My friend Hiran Venugopalan, a very talented designer whom I met at FOSS.in last December, has just released a new GPL 3 font-exception licensed font called Rufscript. It’s a handwriting font that would be really useful for comic strips and maybe labeling photos for a scrapbook.
What I really love about this font (besides how cool it looks!) is that it was created with a completely open source toolchain. Hiran used the GIMP, Inkscape, Font Forge, and GEdit to create this font.
Check out all the details and grab the font and font source for yourself at Hiran’s blog!
(By the way, I submitted a font wishlist request for tRufscript to be included in Fedora. So if you are a packager who likes it too, it would be awesome if you had the time to add it in… )
UPDATE: Great news! Rahul has packaged this font up and submitted it for review! Yipee!
