Favorite Finds | 17 | Typeface Memory Cards

Tuesday, January 22, 2013


I recently came across this typeface memory game designed by PS.2, and since then I have been really wanting an occasion to buy them. I think someone will be sure to find them in their stocking next Christmas. I could also use a set myself and my upcoming birthday may just be that occasion I am looking for (I am an advocate for buying yourself birthday gifts). Not to mention I have a terrible memory in general and anytime that I am working in illustrator I have to go through the enormous list of fonts (the one where it shows you the example of the front and not just the name) to get what I am looking for, no matter how many times I have used it before or how recently. It would be nice to have a few committed to memory and plus I just love type and crisp black and white graphic designs, so looking at these would just make me happy.

  2. They are so beautiful - not even from the practical point of view, but as an object to admire. x

  3. Oh wow. I think I'm in love. I love type, but I'm a total newbie to it and I have no head at all for it. This would make me very happy indeed.

  7. Oh, I'm so glad you shared this find. I love type. Love. Plus, my memory needs all the help it can get. This game counts as a memory exercise, right? Like doing a crossword puzzle. I think you've definitely earned this as a birthday gift to yourself. Shoot, write it off as a business expense. [wink]
