Overview

Type Project has developed adjustable functions that make it possible to retain a balanced state with proper character proportions, even when the weight, contrast or character width is changed. FitFont Service makes use of these functions to create fonts that are capable of dynamic variations while still preserving design consistency and quality. Much in the same way that one can adjust the volume to one’s liking when listening to music, this service allows one to carry out fine adjustments of character thickness and contrast in accordance with the purpose and the application. This is the FitFont concept.
