A few weeks ago, we posted a nifty quiz to test your prowess at differentiating between Helvetica and Arial. If that typography challenge succeeded in whetting your whistle for font games, a new app design is ready to take you to the next level of typographic deduction.
Designed by Copenhagen-based designer Andreas Hansen, Font Nerd is currently only a concept of an app, designed to help users gamify their font experience.
Quizzes — in the form of entertaining sentences displayed in different fonts — prompt players to guess the correct typeface; if you’re stumped, there’s the option to view the whole alphabet. Another fun feature is the built-in Favorites button to help you keep a running list of the fonts that you find most appealing; plus, you’ll have the option to purchase your favorites straight from the app should a particular typeface catch your eye.
