UPDATE (06/04/10): Due to the request of Thorsten at helpworx, I have updated Knightereau to include German characters as well as some legal glyphs. They new goodies include: Ää Öö Ëë Ïï Üü ß ® © ™.
I have always been a fan of receiving little notes from my wife, Kristi. Mostly because of the overly generous things she has to say in them about me, but also because I think she has really cool handwriting. It is fun, whimsical, but also neat and clean.
I have always told her it would make a cool font.
So flashforward into our first year of marriage. It is my birthday and I awake to a series of large notes placed throughout the apartment wishing me a happy birthday from various items in house, such as "I'll try to multiply what's in here today! - Wallet" and "I promise to get the water the perfect temperature for you. - Shower" and so-on as I begin my day. (Kristi leaves the apartment most days before I am even out of bed. Thank you 9am work schedule.) So the next day I brought all of the notes up to the office and scanned them in and that night began working on the Muhammed Ali of fonts, promising to change the type game forever.
I had Kristi fill in the missing characters and glyphs, and even decided to throw in a couple of her signature moves, hearts and a diamond-eyed smiley face.
A few weeks later, Knightereau was born. (Knight + Dansereau = Knightereau in case you missed it.)
And now, I offer this to all of you so that you may go out and spread the good news of a professional, hand-written font. (And you can now ghost write Kristi's personal notes... nobody will know it wasn't her!)
Not every glyph is in here (we left out a few like the tilde and Yen symbols), but if you are looking for a certain one just let me know and I can add it.
