FontGenius 2.7

Today we released version 2.7 of FontGenius for Mac (10.7+) and  Windows (7, 8, and 10).

What’s new?

The usual round of fixes are there, and we’ve improved the image manipulation features and font database.

FontGenius examines pictures and identifies typefaces of any text within a picture. Using advanced recognition technology, FontGenius will produce a list of likely fonts that match selected characters within an image, and will generate character previews of the matched fonts.

Using the matched results, a search can be performed on the internet or your own computer to locate, download, or purchase matched fonts.

Learn More

We are excited to announce an upcoming webcast with Extensis where we will demo FontGenius along with some other awesome font management tools.

It’s on Wednesday, February 9 at 11:00 AM Pacific Time.

Its FREE and you can register here.

Did You Know? Fun Facts about Rio’s 2016 Olympic Font

I know no one has been binging on the Olympics the past few weeks, so here are a few things you might not have known about the Olympic logo that’s been gracing our screens.

  • There are 5,448 characters in the brush script set
  • Many of the letters were fashioned by some of Rio’s famous city icons (example: a lowercase “r” was inspired by the Pedra da Gávea, while the “T” mimics the famed Christ the Redeemer Statue. Others were made with fast, fluid motions to resemble Olympic athletes)
  • The font was constructed by Dalton Maag
  • The Olympic logo was created by Tátil Design. There were over 138 other agencies competing for the honor of designing the logo as well.

Typeface Tuesday – Gloss Drop

glossdrop3glossdrop2glossdrop1oben-Designed by Roland Hormann, “Gloss Drop is a wild hand lettered typeface, that passed the process of digitization without losing the spontaneous vibrancy of brush lettering.” The letters in Gloss Drops don’t look like much on their own, but together, they create a great, slightly careless feeling scrawl that we love.

You can download Gloss Drops here.
