FontFont Wall Map 2006

    Newer Older

    Great work from Jared Benson and Zara Evens.

    Erik Spiekermann and Neville Brody launched the FontFont library in 1990 to produce typefaces “by designers for designers.” Today, FontFonts represent the work of nearly 150 of the world's most skilled and innovative type designers.

    The FontFont Wall Map sheds new light on the collection, making it easier to find the most suitable face among a cast of thousands.

    Breaking from the tradition of alphabetical or categorical order, the poster presents the library in an organic, intuitive way. It is a cloud map of typographic forms in which fonts are organized by their visual relationship.

    The word "Slang" represents the main components of the latin alphabet — uppercase, lowercase, ascender, descender, rounds, and straights. The size of each font sample is relative to the family size. A count of styles and weights is shown in the box next to the font name.
