ABOUT







Typism [Juraj Sukop]

Typism is Juraj Sukop's web-based font editor published in 2009: It is a public site where anyone can create a font for others to use and to study, to modify and to copy. You write the description of a typeface, design the outlines of a glyph, track the development history and publish any revision in human-readable format to store locally. All it takes to run it is a browser supporting a few open standards. [...] I believe it is of uttermost importance that everyone has the unrestricted access to the tools one needs to create freely. Therefore everyone can come here and may do good and that is why typism uses SVG. All the code and fonts are released under MIT License and Open Font License, respectively. [...] In other words, typism borrows heavily from Blender, Firefox, Wikipedia and The Pirate Bay. Juraj was an exchange student at UIAH in Helsinki, and got support for this project from the Slovak government.
