Font Nerds at Extensis Create Complimentary ‘Fontspiration’ App for Pro and Closeted Designers; Available at App Store Today
Portland, Ore.—December 9, 2014— Extensis® today released a new Fontspiration™ app for the font nerd in everyone. Whether a professional designer whose creativity never sleeps, or simply a closet designer who likes to flex their creative muscle, Fontspiration enables users to form custom designs and then share their typographic brilliance on Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, and more.
Drawing on hundreds of fonts from Google® Fonts and dozens of built-in animations, Fontspiration is available now for the iPhone® and can be downloaded for free at the App Store.
“Inspiration can strike at any time. Whether you’re standing in line for coffee or at home on the couch, Fontspiration allows you to easily create and share animated typographic masterworks, discover new fonts, and browse creative typographic samples to stay creatively inspired,” said Jim Kidwell, SR. Product Marketing Manager at Extensis.
Kidwell added: “With the holidays just around the corner, it’s the perfect app for creating custom eMessages. Tag your creation with #fontspiration and Extensis might just feature you on the Extensis blog and other sites!”
With Fontspiration, users can:
Make a Masterpiece: Use the app to layer text over photos – or choose any of the included animated themes – enter some text, choose from hundreds of Google Fonts, and customize the type and animation. Fontspiration’s custom themes are built by Extensis, which users can select as a background for their typographic animations. Some of these unique themes include:
- Film: Jumpy black and white film style a’la Charlie Chaplin
- Glitch: How did Max Headroom get in here?
- Flow: Your virtual typographic Lava lamp
- Streetlight: Create a virtual neon sign
- Stopmotion: A little ‘Nightmare Before Christmas’
Share Typographic Brilliance: Once created, users can share their images, animated GIFs and video masterpieces on Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, and more.
Get Inspired: Extensis new app includes a daily dose of creative juice from the live Fontpiration feed, featuring a continuously updated collection of creative typography, font specimens and fonts in use.
