The “Albert Einstein Font” which is based on hundreds of letters written by Einstein himself, lets you “write like a genius”!
The project is being launched to coincide with the 100th anniversary of Einstein’s, Theory of General Relativity. Through the crowdfunding website Kickstarter, the project has already raised more than $9,000 of its $15,000 goal.
Albert Einstein is best known for his achievements in the world of Physics, such as his Theory of General Relativity (The Gravitational Theory) and Special Relativity (The Theory on The Relationship between Space and Time). But there’s more, the famous physicist also had an impressive handwriting.
Einstein’s equations were beautiful, so it makes sense that their presentation should be as well.”
The project is a collaboration between typographer Harald Geisler and former dancer Liz Waterhouse. In 2009, Waterhouse was looking at words printed in a handwriting-style font on a napkin in Frankfurt, Germany, when she asked Geisler if he could design such a font. Later, they decided to develop fonts based on the penmanship of innovative thinkers.
Geisler spent 6 months pouring over letters from the Einstein Archives before developing a prototype, which he created by tracing the handwriting with a digital pen. The Einstein Estate has since granted approval for Geisler to develop the font. To make the Einstein font seem more natural, Geisler created several variations of each letter, which can be combined with other letters in different ways.
Now, you might not have a brain like Albert Einstein, but at least now you can write like him!
The Albert Einstein font will be compatible with most digital devices, allowing you to write like a genius on your computer and phone,” said Kickstarter website.
