Your Typeface is a variable typeface experiment that combines variable font technology with face recognition and enables you to design a typeface from the proportions and forced emotion of your face. Look surprised or uptight, yawn or smile, and let your face design your own typeface. And then download it! Feel free to use it for any project you like.
We use the Beyond Reality Face SDK framework to process the users camera feed. The framework outputs a point cloud, which we use to draw the smiley face and update the variable font in the browser. When users download their font face, a new instance of the font is created on the fly using a framework called FontTools. This way we are able to lock the font, and the user can download their very own, highly customized TTF file, ready to install on their local system. Voila!
