I actually did that manually; i.e. I kind of knew where I wanted the anchor
points and approximated the angles, then adjusted from there. The smarter
thing to do would've been to trace it with a drawing program and then export
the Bezier points, but I didn't know a good way of doing it.

In the samples I sent, I used Helvetica Neue Light. Unfortunately, I drew
those up with Keynote---just because it was easier for me---so I don't have
an SVG file (Keynote and Preview don't have SVG export options). Ideally, I
would've just drawn the text in Matplotlib, but at the time, I didn't feel
like manually manipulating the text coordinates.

I hope a PDF is OK. If not, I can work on a fully Matplotlib solution, but
it'll have to wait until I have some free time.
