The free Typendium App is for those who are interested in Design, Web Design, fonts and facts about those who created the fonts. A beautifully presented little app – this gives you all the facts you need on your favourite and most famous fonts.
O.K, lets be honest, it’s probably only ever going to be downloaded by arty types and those who have an interest in graphic design and website design, but still for a free app, this is not bad at all.
Baskerville, Futura, Gill Sans, Palatino, Times New Roman. With info on each of these typefaces and the option to suggest more the list could be endless. I can’t wait to add Comic Sans for example, I’d love to know who created THAT.
The details get into the nitty gritty of how these fonts were formed, who designed them and why. All the background on the designer and how they created some of our best loved fonts today, fonts we see every day, and very often overlook.
Typendium is available on the App Store.
