F37 website, by Rick Banks


Graphic designer Rick Banks, who runs F37, has designed a new website for the type foundry.

The site takes the form of a “type tester” which replicates tools of Adobe Illustrator, allowing designers to experiment with different typefaces directly in the browser.

Users are able to move, resize, rotate and change the colour of pieces of text, as well as altering the leading, kerning and tracking of the type.

Francis Smith also worked on the digital design of the site, which was developed by Tom Duncalf.
