ABOUT







Fatfonts [Uta Hinrichs]

FatFonts is a graphical technique conceived and developed in 2012 by Miguel Nacenta (a lecturer in human-computer interaction at the School of Computer Science, University of St Andrews, Scotland), Uta Hinrichs (originally from Lübeck in Germany, she is currently a PhD candidate at the University of Calgary in Canada), and Sheelagh Carpendale (a computer science professor at the University of Calgary).

Numerals in vector fonts developed by the team have a thickness that is proportional to their value. Numerals can also be nested. The (free) fonts were converted to opentype by Richard Wheeler (a PhD student at The Sir William Dunn School of Pathology of Oxford). Uta Hinrichs designed Gracilia, Cubica, and Rotunda. She co-designed Miguta with Miguel Nacenta. Finally, Richard Wheeler himself created the LED typeface 7Segments.
