Challenge of the week
This week your challenge is to create an interaction that teaches one or more basic principles of typography.
Before we get into this week’s challenge, take a second to browse a few more games and interactions designed to help you learn more about fonts and typography.
Designed and coded by Aaron Bloom & Erin Kendig, this interaction helps students learn basic type anatomy and classification.
Cheese or Font
If you love cheese as much as you do fonts, you’ll love this cheesy font game.
You can use Storyline, Studio ‘13, or PowerPoint, to design your font game or interaction.
