Shape Type, made using HTML5, is a 10-stage game that asks from its users to form and fix the badly shaped, unfinished letters from specific typefaces, given the font names and fonts’ designers.
When the users have adjusted multiple bezier handles to get the shape of the character right., they can visually compare their effort with the original character and their score is a percentage based on the similarities.

The great challenge: to ‘create an image out of a word, using only the letters in the word itself and their graphic elements without adding outside elements’. That was what Ji Lee, former Creative Director at Google Creative Labs (we first met him here), did in his new book Word as Image. Have a first look of his work in this wonderfully animated video:
