FontStruct is a free online font-building tool, devised and developed for FontShop International by Rob Meek.
The heart of FontStruct is the FontStructor, a web-application that lets anyone quickly and easily build fonts using basic geometric shapes in a grid just like tiles or bricks. Fonts created with the FontStructor are called FontStructions. They can be downloaded as TrueType fonts and used in Mac or Windows applications.
More than a tool, FontStruct is a vibrant online type-design community. Type-design enthusiasts from all over the world use the FontStructor to experiment with letter shapes and to design fonts, and who give each other comments online on the FontStruct website. They are the FontStructors, the soul of FontStruct.
