Write like a genius

While we can't all be geniuses, thanks to Harold Geisler we can now write like one. The 36-year-old German designer launched a Kickstarter campaign to create a font based on Einstein's handwriting. "I like to imagine that when one uses Einstein's handwriting as a font that a spark of his genius potentially could reflect in one's own writing," Geisler told us. The font is now available for download, and the designer is hard at work creating a font based on another famous person. "It's going to be a woman, that's what I can say."
