FatFonts: New Font Links Value of a Number to Amount of Pixels Shown - information aesthetics | Visualization Techniques and Practice | Scoop.it

FatFonts [fatfonts.org] is a novel numeric typeface for data visualization purposes. The design of FatFonts is based on Arabic numerals, but the amount of ink (i.e. dark pixels) used for each digit is proportional to its quantitative value. This font enables the reading of numerical data while still preserving an overall visual context.
