About Megre Font Family

The courageous Russian author of the best seller Anastasia, Vladimir Megre, once said that this remarkable woman would inspire creative people around the world to produce their best work. Since I consider myself a creative person who has been deeply touched by her story, I sincerely hope that this will be true for me also. Anastasia talks a lot about God, the wonders of the natural world and how all things have been created so perfectly. This belief in universal perfection, however, is not confined to mystics alone. Many great mathematicians and scientists, including Albert Einstein, were of the same opinion. Having read Dan Brown’s The Da Vinci Code, I became quite fascinated with the so-called Fibonacci series; "a sequence of integers in which each integer (Fibonacci number) after the second is the sum of the two preceding integers; specif., the series 1, 1, 2, 3, 5, 8, 13, . . ." (Webster’s Dictionary). These mysterious numbers, which are said to give divine proportions, are found throughout nature in everything from a rose to a spiral galaxy. Many believe that this reinforces the argument that there is a divine intelligence back of creation. With that in mind, I thought it would be interesting to see if I could somehow create a font using these numbers in the design process. If I have succeeded - even partially - in attaining these mystical proportions, it will definitely have been worth all the hard work. And, I sincerely hope that many will enjoy using this font in producing their own best work.

About JAB

As this is the first time I have tried my hand at font creation, there isn't much to say about my experience in this area. Looking back though, I think I have had a secret desire to do this for quite some time. Actually I am more into digital art than fonts and have used PhotoShop for many years to create symbolic paintings. I suppose it was my love of symbols that eventually lead me to design Nefertiti. I am not sure yet if I will create any others. It really depends on the response I get to this one. Although I have successfully completed several graphic design courses over the years, I am basically a self-taught artist. Apart from PhotoShop, I also use Corel Print House. It was with the latter program that I designed the Hieroglyphs for Nefertiti. And now I have had some experience with Font Creator 5, which is a really great program, especially for beginners because it's so easy to use.
