Get me that font!


Timothé Joubert – Graphic Design / Diploma Session 2021

Get me that font!  is an experimental lab exploring digital fonts, it combines a set of online tools which play with variable fonts. The goal of this project is to break the rigidity (or stiffness) of traditional typography. 

With programming languages, you can manipulate and customize the shape of letters and this way typeface can be animated, it can react to your activity on the web and it can break free from old rules. Font can be no longer used but lived. 

This laboratory is for people who feel that typography is a bit boring and that playing with digital letters could be dealt with it in another way and bring enthusiasm in this field. Pogote-moi cette fonte !  involves people to let them loose in a font exploration just as they would practise mosh pit. Just let yourself go with letters!
