Font Design
  • Imagery with the purpose of presenting a self-made font. The font itself is the artwork and is displayed in a neutral and technical manner.

  • Typography containing different styles and techniques.

Text-based Imagery
  • Pieces in which type is used as a minor tool to create an image. The readable content of the visual is less important than the overall look of the piece.

Digital Art > Text Art

  • ANSI art images created using an extension of ASCII art in which visuals are created by block and line art.

  • ASCII art images created using the 95 ASCII (out of 128) characters found on standard computer keyboards, using a mono-spaced typeface.

How do I make my custom fonts work on the PC? Are there any free-ware avaible that is not limited to bitmap designs?
pica-ae Featured By Owner Nov 10, 2014  Professional Interface Designer
(Sorry for the late reply, I was on vacation) 
I am a Mac user myself, so I am not sure about PC programs for fonts. But any font you have installed on your system should show in all art programs. 
If you are looking for free fonts, I suggest Google Fonts or Desktop Font Licensing « MyFonts or look for smaller sites, like Lost Type Co-op
