Have you been involved in projects where you need to quickly put together a design that shows some possibilities or options and then forgot about it. Then, two weeks later you find out that the sales grunt took a purchase order based on the diagram.
Yeah, right – so greatness, much problems, big fuss.
My solution to this problem is the make my own handwritten font for use in network designs which highlights that the diagram is not final or fit for ordering. There are lots of handwritten fonts but it was easy to make my own so I present the Dunno font (because i don’t know what to call it).
Here it is :
The basic idea is that a rough diagram uses a handwritten font demonstrates that makes a diagram look like I roughly hacked something onto the page. It’s loosely based on the typographic properties of Helvetica so it should be suitable for a wide range of purposes. It’s a TrueType font so works on Windows, OS X and Linux.
Here is an example of comparison. The top diagram is using a high quality sans-style font, the lower diagram is exactly the same but using the “Dunno” font:

There is no license. You are free to use and consume as you see fit. If there is enough interest I will consider building an italic and bold version of the font. I’m pretty sure I will make a condensed/narrow font when I have time. It doesn’t take long but this font is enough for now.
