Type War: Learn to Identify Common Typefaces
My high school Spanish teacher used to always chant “Repetition is the mother of learning!” I’ve always believed that which is probably why I’m a fan of flash cards and posting notes around my house when I want to learn something new.
Typewar is a fun font game designed to help you learn to identify common typefaces. The objective is simple: you’re shown a single letter and are asked to choose between two typefaces.
I’ve only played for 15 minutes so I’m not sure how deep the game goes. I like how it cycles through only a few typefaces in the beginning making it a great way to gain some confidence while identifying basic characteristics.
If you’re an elearning or multimedia learning designer looking to expand your understanding of typography and describe the nuances that make up typefaces, this could be a perfect way to get started.
So check it out and let me know how you score. I plan on giving Typewar some more time this week:-)
