this is my first ever try at doing a font... so this is well and truely a BETA version.

The font is based on the dA logo and some other bits and pieces that you can find ie the devWEAR logo and the AR logo that I did recently with ^manicho

Not entirely convinced that all the characters sit well together, but as this is my first stab it'll do for now.

Only Upper, Lower and Numbers are included in this beta release.

I've tried to include the kerning pairs in the files, but for some reason it's being really temperamental and doesn't always work. Manual kerning is advised.

I've included PC and Mac truetype variants. Hopefully something will work for you.

Feedback greatly appreciated.


UPDATE: 5th Sept 07

I've fixed a couple of the issues as noted by user comments. I've also added a few more useful characters; full stops, commas etc.

Nice job. I love the techno style of the logo, this font captures the site's logo perfectly. This is a great font when designing things, such as devIDs or t-shirts. The problem is, when typing "dA," it doesn't seem right. It needs to be flipped for it to seem more... I don't know, real? I don't have a good word for it.
Characters missing: @#$%&-{}~'. If it is possible, make them. If not, it's fine the way it is.
Well, just those few little things and this logo will be a digital perfection! We all thank you for making this! This font is amazing work! Keep up the awesome job!

A great and original font (I've never seen anything quite like this), which has a interesting, snazzy and urban feel to it, which is quite good.

I hate fonts where people have only decided to create half the font, but this font is done entirely, so + +.

If there was a way that this font could be improved, it would be that when typing 'dA', 'da' or any other arrangement of letters, I can't manage to create anything near the deviantART corporate logo. A simple change to the lower-case 'a' should fix this.

Overall, this font is a must for fans of the deviantART style and dA enthusiasts.
