Fontspotting

Self promo




Featured on Notcot, Design Taxi, Gizmodo, Communication Arts, etc.



FontSpotting is a downloadable flash card game Jessica Witt and I designed to help us brush up on our typeface recognition. We released it online in the hope of helping other young graduates and professionals such as ourselves with typeface recognition. The project has so far been featured on Notcot, Design Taxi, Gizmodo, a host of blogs and been tweeted about by the likes of Adobe & Shutterstock. It was also downloaded over 20,000 times in the first two weeks.
