Thank you for visiting Iconian Fonts. This site has been a labor of love for over the past eight years. During the "day" I'm a commercial transaction attorney for one of the world's largest global IT service providers. But I have always been somewhat artistic and graphically inclined. When I got my first PC some 12 years ago, I was instantly fascinated with truetype fonts. Over the years I collected them, scouring the Web at night for freeware and shareware fonts I had not seen before. Eventually I learned how to make fonts, and eventually after that I learned how to make my own web page. Now I've got my own domain name and have released over 350 fonts free for download here at Iconian.com. My fonts have been used and seen all over the world in all forms of media; from television shows to major motion pictures, from print advertisements to comic books and graphic novels, from band logos to logos of well known companies, and from CD covers to all types of other product packaging.
A born and bred native of Philadelphia, I've been a Texan for over a decade. Yes I have a job, and yes I have a life - a wonderful bride, three beautiful daughters and Lucy, the family dog, to be precise! At one point things became a little overwhelming and I was away from this website for well over a year. But while I basically took 2006 off from maintaining and updating the website, as of February 2007 I've been back in action and more or less in full swing, releasing several new fonts every month. The site has grown to go beyond just fonts, including a Nick Fury Fanpage area and other desktop related downloads (wallpapers, icons, etc.). I've recommitted to make the time to continuously work on this webpage - I find it very rewarding, and that's reason enough to work hard at it.
I want to thank my wonderful wife, Becky, for her patience and support as this hobby of mine consumes a lot of free time. Some wives are golf widows; mine is a font widow. But she has encouraged me every step of the way, and even named several of the fonts on this site. Most recently, Becky and I have become the proud parents of our third daughter, and all three of my little girls are the most wonderous and treasured aspect of my life. Nothing has given me as much joy as being a father.
I have made the fonts here available for download and free for any non-commercial use, because philosophicaly I believe that the free exchange of art is just as important to a society as the free exchange of information; which the Internet makes available to millions more each year. However, if you like any of the fonts, or you use them somewhere, please e-mail me and let me know. That's why I'm doing this... so that I can surf the Net and spot one of my fonts being used for someone's graphics. That thrills me to no end! That IS why I am doing this.
