Star creates her own font

Cookbooks, essays, short story collections, photography books — stars are constantly looking to expand their brand. And now, Gourmet actress Nam Sang-mi has… her own font?

The font was unveiled this month on cyworld, and is styled after Nam’s own handwriting. It’s described as “cute” and bright, like the actress herself. (See below.) The font can be used online and also for mobile phones, and starting in December will expand its use beyond cyworld to other online services. They’ve even font-icized some of Nam’s oft-used emoticons (based on the messages she writes in her fan cafes).

That's cute :) I remember her bubbly writing in that one (olddd) sitcom she was in with Shin Dong Yup. I wish I could write as... consistent as she can :P Girl's got some awesome fine motor skills, haha.

I think that's a cute idea and far less show off-y than the photobooks, lifestyle books *ahem*, and what have you's, but the font actually looks less fun than her handwriting, haha. It doesn't really capture her handwriting's bubbliness, methinks.

If she actually created her font herself, with no help from anyone, I am then very very impressed. As a graphic designer, I know it is actually a very hard and tedious process, just think of the documentary "Helvetica" but since I'm not Korean, I cant judge how good her typography design is.
