A little obsessed with typography & a cool little app that might help

By Posted in - Design & Typography on October 2nd, 2013 0 Comments Class Type Design

As a designer, I freely admit I have an obsession with typography.

I spend way too much time viewing fonts, looking for new fonts, playing with leading, spacing, line height etc…

I use the WhatFont plugin in for Chrome.

I use it on almost every site I visit.

What can I say, I really love fonts.

However, I am not a font designer…at least not yet.

I stumbled across a little web app that is currently being Kick Started call Prototypo.  This app won’t let me become a full fledged font designer, but it will help feed my font obsession.  It goes into private beta this month, and hopefully I will get the chance to play with it soon.  It looks like it could be a lot of fun.

It you love fonts, you should check it out.
