    Here is great site that enables you to easily create typefaces/fonts out of grided shapes which it then creates in to usable TrueType fonts. The fonts that are created can be used in Mac or Windows applications.

    Its a great tool for graphic designers or design students to play with. If you choose to share the fonts these are covered by different Creative Commons licenses.

    There is a video explaining the process of building a font, on first viewing it seemed as though Fontstruct had limited possibilities in terms of variety, but on closer inspection there are quite a few options and different tools, shapes to use.

    It is grid based so there are certain types of fonts that just aren’t achievable but worth a play!
