Type Dating Site

Creativity is love. The process of creating is full of love, passion and sometimes sweat (the good kind).

This site, TypeConnection merges the two in a fun and beautifully designed way.

TypeConnection is a typographic dating game - but it's not to help you find a new lover (which is great, because according to this site I am a bad matchmaker)

According to the site, "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."

My favourite part - this is a MFA thesis project. It's been tweeted over 3000 times. Way to show your skills and get your name out there, Aura!

 Check it out and see how you fare as a type matchmaker.

Here was my failed attempt: 

And the results:

Womp. Hope you do better.
