Picsart uses AI to create new fonts

Is there anything AI can’t do

Picsart, a social design community and app is building AI-generated fonts for creators.

Developed by Picsart AI Research (PAIR), the fonts are the app's first end-to-end AI-generated fonts. PAIR used AI to do this by training models with a considerable dataset of fonts to create letters, symbols, and numbers. These glyphs, created in the thousands, are then converted to a vectorized image and finally, to a font file.

So far, the outfit has made 30 fonts have been created, and you can buy them as part of Picsart Gold, a paid subscription plan offering access to all creative services on the app. Additional fonts will be added in coming months.

Picsart, director of AI and machine learning Anush Ghambaryan said that demand for new and unlimited options for creation. Fonts are one of the most popular features in our content library, and this new technology opens the door for infinite font creation.

Picsart asks for three to five keywords to inspire the AI and then supply certain features, such as handwritten.

What we don’t get with this particular business plan is that the last place I want a personalised font is on a mobile phone. The place for fonts is in your DTP or word processor and anywhere else is inconvenient or just a novelty.

Still, the company raised $130 million from Softbank in mid 2021, and was among the 20 most-downloaded apps the same year.
