Submit Your Handwriting And Help To Create A ‘Universal Typeface’
By Melissa Goh, 12 Jun 2014
The makers of BIC Cristal ballpoint pens and “world's best selling universal pen”, have created a microsite for people from around the world to submit their handwriting.
The creators have developed an algorithm that “calculates the average and merges them into one ever-changing, always evolving font, unifying the world's handwriting into a universal typeface”.
The interactive site shows letters of the alphabet overlapped with various handwritings—the contributor's name and picture will appear by navigating the mouse over the letter.
Users can further explore the typeface by clicking on the various categories, like “Gender”, “Age”, “Country”, that break-down the number of characters contributed for each letter—for instance, the letter “F” has 12875 number of contributors from the age range of 15-29.
Head over to the website to find out more.
