We decided to create self-initiated project Type Terms, an animated cheat sheet aimed to help teach new designers, and remind experienced ones, about typographic terminology.
The whole concept of Type Terms was built around the fact that we remember information better when looking at visuals as opposed to reading large amounts of text.
We made sure that each term could be described visually by using clear and simple animations so that the user had an idea of what the term meant before having to read anything. This was achieved by using SVG’S and CSS Keyframe Animations to animate each term.
Type Terms was immensely popular across the web after being featured on several big web design and development sites such as Creative Bloq. Type Terms had 120k visitors in six weeks, 9.5k shares on Facebook and also won multiple site of the day awards from recognised web design and development websites such as the Awwwards,
One reason Type Terms did so well was due to success on social media. Hundreds of people from around the world shared it with one another across platforms such as Facebook, Twitter & Linkedin. It even got the attention of Jeffrey Zeldman, the pioneer of web standards.
