The Expression Blend SketchFlow fonts

We recently commissioned a couple of custom fonts for this new addition to the Expression Blend suite mentioned at the Mix09 event last week.

The fonts SketchFlow Print...

I know this isn’t your department, Simon, but someone at Microsoft.com should be aware that the Wikipedia entry about expression blend explains it infinitely better than Microsoft.com does…

Great fonts tho.

Thanks, I'll pass this feedback onto the Blend folks :-)

The fonts are great, but not for sketching. Sorry, but they're almost unreadable at a small size. Comic Sans is better. Chalkboard on OS X is even better. And I can't find the option in Blend 3 to make it stop defaulting to Buxton Sketch. :-(
