A functional specimen from HvD Fonts for Fabrikat Kompakt but notable because of the opening branding/illustration. Clean, simple, graphical lines present the typeface in simple juxtaposition. Another nice touch is the long-form feature explanation with toggles to see the difference.
This templated specimen from Positype is notable for the glyph table. In particular, I felt the preview of the glyphs – which are shown on click – display that choice in the context of other glyphs either side and simple cap height, x-height and baseline metrics.
Not sure where to start with this type tester for Q. Type tester is probably the wrong term anyway. 'Constructor' is probably more apt. The interface allows you to explore the various Lego-like build variables for the letterforms.
