A specimen that reads as a research project. The linear, scrolling story is punctuated by typographic illustrations and research photographs.
Snap it is a monospaced font without the curves. Because... why not? But underneath this quirky exterior is a typeface with considered and well-constructed form. The specimen in particular goes a long way in explaining the features.
This specimen for FF Ernestine is a presented as a microsite in a traditional way. A homepage with hero image, introductory text, a page with all the glyphs. Whilst this could work very well for print, more is needed for digital. Maybe showing its age?
A really unusual specimen. Presented as a long-form article documenting the design features, history, and inspiration for the creation of Franziska.
A simple but effective specimen for MD System from Mass Driver. Unusually, no type tester. Instead, a prominent download button for trial fonts and a PDF specimen.
A simple specimen for a workhorse of a typeface. Jakarta Sans, an Open-source font for Jakarta city has some really interesting alternates that, when combined, take Jakarta Sans in a really interesting direction.
