FontShop has always been known for its ground-breaking type projects, and for its artistic as well as technological innovations, like RandomFonts by LetTerror, Neville Brody’s FUSE, TypeNavigator, FontQA, FontStruct and so on. This time yet, it is the Belgian/Dutch FontShop franchise that is spearheading cutting-edge typographic research. We are proud to present to you revolutionary advancements in inflatable, wet, adhesive and edible type, and invite you to discover… FontPool.
The FontPool concept has been thoroughly tested according to the most demanding scientific requisites – through empirical research which produced measurable and repeatable results. Both female and male test subjects were used, ranging from one to eleven years old – a representative cross section of the juvenile population. What follows is a photographic – dare we add ‘historic’? – document of FontPool. Enjoy!
