Created by Yannick Mathey (byte-foundry), prototyp-0 is an application designed for the drawing of typographical characters. Created using Processing, the application automates the process allowing you to manipulate a large number of character properties in realtime, reflecting on the results and applying it to others.
Settings used on a single letter or letter sequence “type,” are instantly reflected on all the glyphs: Low-to-break, capitals, small capitals, but also numbers and common punctuation. The built in database includes all the typographic features achievable for any desired font, including fonts similar to the historical styles. Markers can alert the user of the limits and within the established rules of proportion and typography.
