If you love typefaces as much as we do, then you’ll love this brand new typography app that has just been released; Fontspiration is a cool app for iOS boasting two features font lovers won’t want to miss.

The first feature is a feed of typographic inspiration; amazing type-based work that you’ll get lost in for hours and come out the other side feeling truly inspired.

The second feature actually allows you to quickly create typographic animations using hundreds of Google Fonts, and literally dozens of built-in animations, custom designed for this app.

Built by Extensis, the team that brought you Suitcase Fusion and Universal Type Server, Fontspiration is the fastest way to mockup awesome typographic animations. You can even share those typographic masterpieces via sms, email, or the cloud; making this the perfect way to send a custom message to loved ones this holiday season.

Inspiration can strike at any time. Whether you’re standing in line for coffee or at home on the couch, Fontspiration allows you to easily create and share animated typographic masterworks, discover new fonts, and browse creative typographic samples to stay creatively inspired — Jim Kidwell, SR. Product Marketing Manager at Extensis

The process is incredibly simple: Pick a theme; enter your text; customize the text’s font, color; adjust the layout; and finally pick an animation. Once you’ve done so you can share your creation with the world, as an image, an animated gif, or even a video.


Best of all Fontspiration is completely free. It’s a cool way to mock up some ideas, send a thoughtful message to someone, or just keep those creative ideas ticking over.

You can download Fontspiration free, direct from the App Store.
