Fonstruct is apparently still in beta mode but it is an exiting new idea that I am sure will quickly gain popularity amongst the design and typography crowd. The site offers an online application that allows users to construct their own font. After building your font you can then save and download it in a zip file. The application allows you to preview and tweak the kerning of the letters as well. It looks like it could be really cool. I have wanted to work with a font application for some time now and have never gotten around to purchasing one so I may give this a try. It’s a great resource for any designer and probably a good study in typography in terms of the experience. You can also view and download the creations of other users.

As I said, it appears to still be in beta mode but if you consider yourself an early adopter, you can go to Fontsruct now and try it out.
