Please, fonts have feelings too you know! They also have personalities.
(Except for Comic Sans and Papyrus - they are each dumb as bricks).
So what happens when a font gets lonely?
Enter the Type Connection! As her final thesis for a M.F.A. from MICA, Aura Seltzer designed an online dating game for typefaces!
From her site:
Type Connection is an online game that helps users learn how to pair typefaces. Like a conventional dating website, Type Connection presents potential “dates” for well-known, workhorse typefaces. Users are matchmakers. They decide what kind of match to look for by choosing among several strategies for combining typefaces.Brilliant! The accompanying exhibit is now closed, but the website is still up.
Help out some wanting typefaces!
And here's the story behind the project at Felt & Wire!
