Hi! This is David Kim in MyType Team!
https://mytype.io/ is a font market platform for designers to search fonts much easier. We are utilizing artificial intelligence technology to classify fonts and provide a user experience that is easier and faster to find fonts.
I want to ask you if the service we are creating is going to be useful, so I’m writing here.
Let me introduce our service. There will be many images.
Both designers who use fonts and designers who create fonts have big problems.
- Font users enter multiple font sites to find their own feelings. And they look up using various font categories and knowledge, but the results with the fonts are sorted regardless of each other so that they have to gaze one by one.
- Because of poor search engines based on tags, making their fonts stand out is a big problem for font creators. This feature forces font creators to put information that is definitely not related to fonts (even Sans Serif and Serif are included together…) And receive chicken feed.
We have created a style-based search platform to solve these problems! This is a way to solve problems for both font users and font creators!
This picture is the first page of our
landing page. First, there are five buttons that let you use our service simply.
When you click on the font, the buttons change to the fonts that are similar
with the font you choose. If you're interested, you can check out our service
by clicking Try Full Version.
Then you will see this screen. You can choose category, Slant and Weight just like existing font search platform. If you do not know what you want, you can just click the Search button to see it all!
I want to see Display and Handwriting here, I have selected two and set the Weight as above. Then press the Search button.
Voila! Many fonts are coming! It's not just search results, but similar styles, so it's much easier to find! I like the League Script, but do not like it a bit. So what should I do?
Click the arrow next to the font card to open a new window. Let 's start with the first Focus this Style.
New results are loading! I can see a lot of letters similar to League Script. I like Miss Fajardose here!
By the way, I think that handwriting is too complicated. But I want the style like League Script. Then click Similar Style at. And I want Sans Serif, so let's click on Sans.
Results are at the top that are Sans Serif and as thin as League Script! With MyType, it will be really easy to find fonts!
This system does not sort with the most recent fonts, the most used fonts or alphabetically, but purely the design of fonts.
This system recommends exactly what the user wants, so the fonts are not buried by other fonts and are hardly not exposed! So when they uploading fonts, there is no reason to worry about strange tags or marketing strategies. Only the font design will be considered! Mytype do not even get the commission as much as other font sites.
Our service is in mytype.io and anyone can check it. In addition, we are currently recruiting font creators. If you submit free fonts for beta launching, the fonts are able to get exposure to search results!
Bug reports and feedback are always welcome. We hope this service will help you to find some fonts.
