Things I consumed — W3 ‘23

Typographic trends, a “cool” typeface, and a building-block font designing tool.

  • Remember that Cool S that you used to draw on your desk in middle school? It has an entire font that you can download for free.
  • Five typographic trends for 2023 from the It’s Nice That blog. These are trends that you wouldn’t find in your typical Figma project. Highlights include Hallucinating Type by Rajshree Saraf. A project that uses augmented reality to display type. Don’t let the buzz-word fool you, it’s worth the click.
  • Fontstruct. A free, browser based font design app that “lets you quickly and easily create fonts constructed out of geometrical shapes, which are arranged in a grid pattern, like tiles or bricks.” Makes you think about the components of type and how it all fits together.
