Campaign update: 3 stretch goals

  • 4,500€ — Prototypo Academy 
    A complete range of tutorials to help you doing your first steps with Prototypo.
  • 6,000€ — A fourth template 
    A brand new parametric font to start with.
  • 8,000€ — We adapt one of our parametric font to the Cyrillic alphabet 
    Many of you were eager to use Prototypo with a Cyrillic template. If we hit that goal, we’ll adapt one of our parametric font by the end of 2017.

A month ago we have been reached by Kickstarter to be part of the “Make 100” project, an initiative that inspired us to launch a special offer: The “Make 100 Fonts Pack”. This exclusive offer will allow designers to make 100 unique fonts with Prototypo, the real time font creation web app. 

Aren't you tired of using the same old fonts?

Working on a logo or a brand identity can sometimes feel like a repetitive grind. How many projects use the same version of Helvetica or one of the popular choices coming from Google Fonts-likes alternatives? We know that all design projects do not have necessarily a big budget line for a fully custom typeface. Prototypo offers a simple way for graphic designers to create custom fonts that fit the customer's value.

What is Prototypo?

Our application gives graphic designers and type lovers the ability to create personalized fonts that can be used wherever they want: you can give it, sell it and modify it in every way you want.

Prototypo is a real time font creation web application that gives anyone the ability to create a unique font in a few clicks. After choosing one of our three font templates (designed by the internationally renown foundry Production Type) users can draw their own font by moving over 30 sliders (x-height, curves of the serifs, width…).

The changes apply directly to each character of the Latin alphabet providing instant feedback on your work.

From the Elzevir font template to a custom font.

Since Prototypo’s launching Kickstarter campaign in 2014, we constantly improved the app. We’re now proud to be able to provide a complete font creation tool.

Each feature has been designed to offer users a maximum degree of customization. We recently released Prototypo v2 that includes the manual editing feature. This allows users to manually modify the nodes of each skeleton. This turned Prototypo into a tool that can help you to create a font from A to Z.

This innovative approach to type design brings users the opportunity to get stronger visual identity with original fonts. Sometimes the font perfectly matching your needs for a logo or a brand project doesn't exist. Why don't you create it?

  • Create your own font by modifying more than 30 parameters.
  • Make it spotless thanks to the individualization options.
  • Tune it to perfection with the manual editing feature.
  • Export your font to .otf and use it the way you want.
Individualize letters or groups of letters.

100 packs of 100 exports. Without time limits.

The “Make 100 fonts Pack” offers the possibility to create and export 100 fonts without time limit. Prototypo is working on the SaaS model: our current plans are monthly or annual subscriptions but the “Make 100 fonts pack” provides you with the full version of Prototypo until you use all your credits. An export credit gives you the right to export a font (1 credit per .otf file exported).

  • Create 100 unique fonts and use them the way you want (you are free to sell your creations).
  • Benefit of all the updates and new features.
  • Enjoy the full version of Prototypo as long as there is a credit remaining on your account (without time limit).

Risks and challenges

Created in May 2013, Prototypo is now a team of 7 people. The tool gathers an international community of 20,000 graphic designers and type lovers coming from over 130 countries.
Prototypo already got a successful kickstarter campaign under its belt and there isn’t any risk regarding the attribution of your rewards. You will enjoy your export credits as soon as the campaign will be over.
