Many of people have thought and worked over the [creation of font](http://time2hack.blogspot.com/2009/10/create-your-own-character-or-font-in.html). Some of them succeeded very much and some of them got satisfied with ready made fonts. And also if you are creative enough in making the creative art with the Alphabets and don’t have a strong command over the computer mouse and graphics, then you have to sit and see & appreciate others work.
