It’s the fonts speak the words

Posted by Charles | January 8, 2008 .

At a web site, a web application, especially a RIA based application, most people forgot it’s the fonts speak the words on a UI. Fonts can be easily neglected. But we know small thing kills. Fonts should be on your RIA tool belt.

I found this little Flash site TypeNavigator (partially) helps. It’s actually a site to sell fonts (I’m not affiliate with them though.) The Flash part is to help search the type of fonts in your mind. As you know, every font has a name and there are hundreds of new fonts created continuously. You just can’t know exactly what kind of fonts you are looking for, of cause, except the usual default boring ones. At this Flash tool, you can visually specify the look and feel of the font you are imagining and do the search. The result is very interesting and accurate actually. I didn’t buy anything from them though. I did play the search and like it. I think visual added search is the way of future search. After all, as I said before, we are visual animals.
