TouchType – A Typography App

The home screen of TouchType app

Overview

TouchType is a project for my typography class. The idea is simple. It is for typography student or designers who want to learn typography. It allows them to compare two different fonts at the same time. It also has many features to help them identify each font carefully. The process of this designing this app is quite smooth. The part that I struggled with was the UI of the app. At first, I was trying to use two different colors for the UI to differentiate the two font. One side of the app was one color, the other side was another color. It made the app looks busy, and it took on the importance of the font itself. Then I moved to this clean look, it looks much better, and it helps users to focus more on the font itself.
