A font made out of Instagram images

There are a lot of interesting ways to use Instagram for more than just selfies and food. This creative website takes Instagram photos and turns them into a unique font.

Type To Design curates letterforms taken on Instagram as part of the 36 Days of Type project which challenges creative designers and illustrators to capture creative letterforms and numbers in all different types of styles.

You simply go to the site and start typing what you would like to appear in Instagram letters. If you don’t like a particular letter, you can click it and a new one will generate for you.

Once you are satisfied, you can then download it as a PDF for your own use.

The resulting font can only be used for personal projects (non-commercial), but it is a great way to create custom type powered by Instagram.

If you simply want to browse all of the beautiful and creative letterforms that the site uses, you can scroll through the 36 Days of Type Instagram page.
