Feature Roundups on Typogram — June Edition
Week 40 of Founding Typogram
Hi, I am Wenting. I recently quit my job of seven years to build my start-up, Typogram, a logo design and editing tool for startup founder. We just launched our pre-order✨! Get a one brand lifetime license at a huge discount and edit your design forever.
Hey Friends! Hope you are having a fabulous June so far!
Thanks so much for the feedback on which design is better from last week! I was really torn between option A and C, and even more so after hearing everyone’s opinion! Option C was more traditional and easier to get used to, while Option A is more simplistic, and provides a unblocked view. The jury is still out on that one; meanwhile I hear that people are expecting to hear more about the main startup ventures I am exploring — how is Typogram development going, really?
Going forward, I will report Typogram’s updates and new features monthly! Here are some feature rounds up from recent development of Typogram:
Having options is good - when I design or write, I like to keep records of all the past versions. This is what the multiple canvases feature does - it allows you to save versions of your design to a new artboard and keep editing them and developing them into new directions. Multiple canvases are handy to develop different ideas and compare them in the end.
Our kerning feature allows you to adjust the space between letters and work on those design details in your logos. In design, kerning describes the space between a pair of letters. For logos especially, spaces between specific letter pairs need adjustments to look visually balanced.
We support keyboard shortcuts to navigate between letter gaps and adjust them up and down using arrow keys. To discern the negative space between letters, sometimes it is better if we don’t read them as letters, instead we see them simply as shapes; that is why we add features to flip the letters upside down and highlight the gap with light blue color, to aid the kerning process.
