TAKTIPO – learn the basics of typography

Balazs Szemmelroth, Aniko Mezo, and Monika Rudics are master students from Visual Arts Institute in Eger, Hungary. As a study project, they have created TAKTIPO.

The books and typography materials are often too boring and prosy, which decreases attention, and makes studying difficult. However, if you make studying exciting, learning is easy and fun. That is why we decided to create a game: to learn by playing.​​​​​​​

The card game contains one deck of 63 cards. Each card, has 3 sections: a question about the basics of typography or type anatomy, the correct answer for the question, and an illustration based on the question.”

If that was not enough, we created the online version of TAKTIPO, so you can play it anytime, anywhere. An application, which follows the logic of the card game, you have to choose the correct answer from 3, with the help of illustrations. We made a website too, where you can play, read the brief and click the WANT button, to buy it immediately.
