TypeDig is an app for designers and aspiring typomaniacs. With the snap of a photo, the app can identify a typeface and provide a wealth of information about it. A frequent TypeDig user would significantly increase their familiarity with typefaces, designers, foundries, and trends within the industry and beyond.

I designed this fictitious app because I wish something like it existed. On the web, I use resources like MyFonts’ forum, WhatTheFont, and a Google Chrome extension, Fontface Ninja, to identify typefaces I notice online. But when I’m out in the world and a typeface grabs my attention, I have no way of finding out what it is right away.

I imagine this app would be most useful for design students who are interested in typography but lack in-depth knowledge.
