Font library Monotype has updated its mobile app, FlipFont, enabling users to transform the fonts on their phones' interfaces, menus and applications into fun comic-book fonts.
The newly added fonts are the work of LA foundry Comicraft & Active Images, which has also created fonts for films including Toy Story 2, as well as for comic books, magazines and video games.
Comicraft's Richard Starkings says: “Comic book fonts can’t help but evoke fantasy and fun, just as comics have done for generations. Thanks to Monotype Imaging’s technology and expertise, the appeal of comic book fonts now transcends the limits of prints and carries their inherent liveliness to mobile devices.”
The nine new comic books fonts include the Dave Gibbons font, based on the lettering of the comic book artist of “Watchmen” fame, and the Storyline Typewriter font, which combines comic book lettering with classic typewriter type.
