Pavithra Ramanujam is a sucker for bright colours, bezier curves, smooth gradients and crisp jalebis. They serve as my muse as I design keynotes, prezi’s, visual interfaces and cool icons at work. Her latest obsession: lettering and stitching -- and comparing fonts to the rich and famous.

The Future of the Fonts

BY 葉俊麟 CHUN LIN YEH
@ VOL 28 ON MAR 26, 2016

Founded by Yeh Chun-lin, justfont aims to provide designers with a dazzling array of fonts that can be downloaded from the Cloud. Yeh also founded a Facebook fan page called “Love Fonts” (字戀) where designers can bounce ideas off each other on font-related topics. Moreover, he launched a “Jin Xuan” font  (金萱體) with the support of fundraising platforms, hoping to push educational software developers to roll out more attractive fonts and lift the quality of locally developed fonts. 

葉俊麟創辦justfont希望提供設計師從雲端即可得到自由運用的字型,並成立「字戀」粉絲頁,讓設計師討論字型相關議題,並分享「金萱」新中文字體透過募資平台順利推出的過程,期望拋磚引玉教育軟體業者能推出美的字型,影響並改變台灣未來的文字風景。
