Ok, so American Idol was on in the background when I heard Ryan Seacrest introduce Megan Joy Corkrey, the 23-year-old Utah native, as a font designer. I can't find her work online—has anyone seen any of her typefaces?

Typophile has a discussion brewing on the subject.

Hey...Just thought I'd provide a little info on this subject. Megan doesnt develop/design publicly available fonts. She created handwriting typefaces for users of SendOutCards (an online greeting card company with over 100,000 users). SOC allows you to pick a card, personalize it, and then prints and mails it out for you. Most SOC accounts come with a "Handwriting Font" so that your message comes out looking like you hand wrote it, with your signature. I'm the Creative Director for this company, and also own the company that creates these handwriting fonts for its users. Megan is one of my contract designers (and my neice) and has created tens of thousands of fonts for "card senders" around the world. However, looks like her fonting days may be over soon (Go MEG!!).
