Fun Font is a geometric typeface I drew in Illustrator and then promptly forgot about. This was before I studied design, so the font is not constructed that well. There are no optical adjustments, which means that rounded shapes appear slightly smaller than shapes with straight edges, and letter spacing is non-existent. Basically, every design decision was made to preserve the grid.

I originally called the typeface “Fun Font” because the original sketch was multicolored. When I rediscovered the sketch much later on, I had the idea that I might be able to make this multicolored idea work computationally. This website accomplishes that by breaking up every letter into its component parts and then colors those parts individually, fluctuating their colors over time.
