Typography Recognition App

The Challenge

This is a prototype for an instant font identification app, powered by Google Fonts, titled Just my Type. It enables the user to take or upload any photo of a font they want to identify, and it will give them the best matching options in the Google Fonts library. It allows the user full free availability for use (no purchase required!), and includes a customizable font library that holds the user’s favourite fonts.

The Solution

In order to start the designing process, a wireframe/flowchart was created. It can be viewed using the link provided. It featured a total of 10 screens, from which six were fully designed for the final prototype. For this app, I also created some branding. This included a logo, a colour scheme, some fonts, and a set of icons.

The logos and icons were created in Adobe Illustrator.

The wireframes and screens were created in Adobe XD, and then the six screens were brought into InVision for the prototyping process.

The Result

A small prototype of the app was created using InVision, and can be viewed using the link above!
