Working is something I have been struggling a lot with lately. My chronic migraines and chronic pain make it really hard for me to hold down a job for any length of time and I usually end up quitting out of sheer frustration. Working from home has been something that’s been on my mind for a long time now and I am sure I am not alone when it comes to others suffering from chronic illness, chronic pain, or mental illness. In my search for things to do to make money from home I accidentally discovered font design. Below is an image I made in Canva Pro using my own handwritten custom font.
Introducing Kirsten Dawn – A Hand Written Font
One thing I have figured out over the last few years is that if you plan to work from home it really has to be something you love, or you will really struggle at it. Enter font design; hand lettering is something that I absolutely love to sit and do on my iPad or on a piece of paper in front of the TV or listening to music, so I figured why not turn it into something profitable? I am not confident enough with drawing to really make my hand lettering designs stand out, therefore designing fonts seems to be the answer at the moment. Or at least I hope so.
Here is a look at what my first font contains:

Upper & Lower Case, Numbers, Punctuation, Currency, Accents & More
I really went all out on the characters in this one. I don’t have all the ones that I possibly could have but I have a lot more than most fonts I have downloaded myself to use in Canva Pro or Photoshop. I used an app called Calligraphr. I’ve included upper case, lower case, numbers, punctuation, currency, accents, and more as I am charging a small price for the fonts. I am considering doing some free demo versions with fewer characters, for instance just lower or uppercase and numbers and some basic punctuation. What do you think? Should I do that for each font or only a few select ones? Let me know in the comments. Would that interest anyone?
Good For Digital Planning, Journaling , Logo Design & More
This font would work well for just about any project however it would be particularly cute as a font used in a digital planner or journal as well as in logo design as in the mockup below.
