What is Fontplore?

Fontplore is an interactive application designed for searching and exploring font databases.Fontplore helps you to easily find the right typeface for your project in a collection of several thousands of fonts. It lets you browse, preview, compare and print the fonts you are interested in.

Fontplore

It does all that is an interactive table, using tangible objects to navigate and control actions, so the workflow is easy to understand - easy to grasp!

The Fontplore application was developed by Christian Hertlein and Marcus Paeschke in summer 2009 under the supervision of Till Nagel and professor Boris Müller.

What is Typedia?

Typedia is a community website to classify typefaces and educate people about them. Think of it like a mix between IMDb and Wikipedia, but just for type. Anyone can join, add, and edit pages for typefaces or for the people behind the type.

We love type, and we have a burning desire to learn as much as possible about typefaces: where they come from, who made them, and why they look the way they do. We want everyone to be able to share in that rich knowledge and enjoy the art and artists of type design. Over time, we think Typedia could grow into a great educational resource for people to learn about their favorite typefaces and discover new ones.
