DIY Fontlympics

Hopefully you’ve been enjoying our 2012 Fontlympics. With the event soon coming to a close (at least until the 2014 Winter Fontlympics, when Baseline FontsMegaflakes start falling), we wanted to point out some free assets and tools to help you build your own Fontlympics at home and on a budget.

First, don’t miss out on downloading Virus FontsJonathan Barnbrook’s Olympukes 2012 edition from our free fonts page. Read the interview with Barnbrook on The FontFeed, then build your own subversive competitions.

Next up, if you’re looking for an angular typeface on a budget for the background signage of your at-home games, try out Max Kisman’s FF Jacque from FontFont, a free download on FontShop.com.

Finally, try testing out how other typefaces will fit into your games before you buy with the FontShop Plugin for Adobe Photoshop and Illustrator. See how over 150,000 fonts look in your mockups with this free tool.

Get inspiration for your events from our blog posts, recent newsletters, Pinterest board and Twitter hashtag #fontlympics. We’d love to hear how your competitions turn out! Let us know in the comments.
