Fontspotting: a challenge for typography nerds

So you claim to be a typography nerd, do you? Well, we have just the challenge for you. Australian-based creatives, Dustin de Souza and Jessica Witt, have come up with a game that may be your undoing… or your making. FontSpotting is a flashcard game which tests players’ knowledge about the names of different typefaces. Essentially, you have a sentence flashed at you and you have to name the font; so it’s not only a fun game, but a clever learning tool. The cards come in a downloadable version or a pretty neat print version and both can be paid for with a Tweet. This is definitely our type of fun. Pun intended.
