Ascii Design is a free program, based on figlet engine, that enables you to create awesome ascii art text. You can create art based text for many types of decorations for web sites, e-mail, text files etc...
Ascii Design is able to use dozens of special fonts to create various styles of ascii arts.
ASCII art is a graphic design technique that uses computers for presentation and consists of pictures pieced together from the 95 printable (from a total of 128) characters defined by the ASCII Standard from 1963 and ASCII compliant character sets with proprietary extended characters (beyond the 128 characters of standard 7-bit ASCII). The term is also loosely used to refer to text based visual art in general. ASCII art can be created with any text editor, and is often used with free-form languages. Most examples of ASCII art require a fixed-width font (non-proportional fonts, as on a traditional typewriter) such as Courier for presentation.
Ascii Design is available for Linux and Windows operative systems.
