BirdFont is a free and Open Source font editor that lets you create vector graphics and export them to TTF, EOT and SVG fonts. You can create your own fonts from scratch with a variety of drawing tools that let you design the vectors for each letter, or you can trace letters or import them in SVG format. The interface is mapped out in a functional way providing you with easy access to all the features needed to start the creative process.
Create from scratch your individual fonts with the air of a large range of drawing features that will let you develop for every letter individually. The program is also able to open the existing font files required for editing. As long as you create and release fonts under the license of SIL Open Font BirdFont is free to use.
A clear, genuine user interface lets you start working from scratch on your letters. When beginning a new task you are granted with a grid of numbers and letters as well as many characters so that you can pick the one you want to create.
