Write Like a Genius With Einstein, Da Vinci, and Freud Fonts

Kevin Whipps March 31, 2021 · 2 min read
We all aspire to build amazing things that last well beyond our lifetime, but not all of us are going to get to the levels that geniuses like Einstein and Da Vinci achieved. But what if we just wanted to write like those scholars of old? Well, turns out we can — sort of. And we can do that by using their handwriting.

Albert Einstein

First off, let’s tackle Albert Einstein. His typeface is on Kickstarter right now, and currently sits at around 200% of its original funding goal, so you can feel pretty good about funding it if that’s your jam.

Sigmund Freud

You know the guy who made the Albert Einstein typeface? He’s the same guy who created Sigmund Freud’s font, too. (We’d say something about karma and “it’s a small world” here, but we’re sure Freud would have something to say about that.) Again, same premise: famous person’s handwriting, now available as a font. Here are a few samples.

Leonardo da Vinci

Finally, there’s Leonardo da Vinci, which has an even cooler take. Leonardo da Vinci often wrote backwards, and he was also left handed. Why? Well there are lots of theories, including one that he was dyslexic. Either way, you can write just like him with the Da Vinci font. There’s even purchase a version that writes backwards!
