Inspired by Fat Fonts, as part of Sheelagh Carpendale’s CPSC 683 course at the University of Calgary, I began to think of other ways we could visualize text. With fractal fonts you can continuously scroll into the text to reveal each character of a word. Earlier characters in a word are larger than the ones after them. Perhaps this technique could be useful for visualizing acronyms or for reading in a ZUI environment? For the best results, try exploring these fractal fonts in these vector PDFs below.
