Your Face Looks Very Helvetica Today

font-face from Andy Clymer on Vimeo.

The running gag in the Word of Mouth cubicles is what font would best describe our personalities. (I think mine was Hobo Standard.) Andy Clymer's font-face project goes a step further and actually changes the look and feel of a font based on your facial expressions - designing a font until it truly lives up to the term "typeface"

People have been designing fonts based on their handwriting for years and years, but a font based on your face? I guess we could really find out whether I'm a Hobo Standard or not.


Now it's your turn. Head over to the comments field and carefully craft an awesome link or two. Use your face if you can.
