About Type Connection.

Type Connection is a game that helps you learn how to pair typefaces.

Start by choosing a typeface to pair. Like a conventional dating website,
Type Connection presents you with potential “dates” for each main characterwithout the misleading profile photos and commitment-phobes. The game features well-known, workhorse typefaces and portrays each as a character searching for love. You are the matchmaker. You decide what kind of match to look for by choosing among several strategies for combining typefaces. Along the way, you explore typographic terminology, type history, and more. By playing Type Connection, you deepen your own connection with type.
