Fun with Typography

I Love Typography is a great resource for exploring the art of the letter. Here’s a useful post with the basic principles of web typography we discussed in class.

Typography Games

  • I Shot the Serif: Test your ability to recognize serif vs. sans serif fonts
  • I Love Typography’s The Font Game asks you to identify fonts. Difficult but surprisingly addictive.
  • KernType (from Method of Action) is a great test of your intuition when it comes to the spacing between letters.
  • Also from Method of Action, ShapeType might be especially appealing to the illustrators out there — line and point proportion testing for individual letters.
  • Type Connection, a font dating game, is one of my favorites, because it playfully helps you match fonts, and gives you lots of info to understand why some combos work and others don’t.
