A virtual space by
Dinamo for sharing
internally developed tools that help or confuse the modern type
The Font Gauntlet provides a selection of features for testing
and analysing typefaces during the design process and was
specifically built with variable fonts in mind, allowing for an
animated preview of all their axes combined.
The Dinamo Pipeline isn’t really a useful tool, rather a RGB
coloured shrine to exhibit variable projects that Dinamo members
are working on. Imagine a “Netflix for Variable Fonts” where
users can select a variable font, then stream it.
This is a plugin for Glyphs App which we developed together with
Wei Huang, following a conversation with
in Zurich. The tool shows an oval for a mouse cursor which can
be used to gauge the width of strokes.
