!Exclamachine relaunched

The central feature is the typeface gallery- renovation was long overdue. Other highlights include background on the designers, a "new releases" news subscription option, and links to the projects we support.
Next up, I finishing the shop. I plan to offer a few things I haven't seen anyone else do with digital type yet. Then, I will expand the specimens a bit.

Thank you. It is a work in progress, and the feedback from viewers has been lead to some great improvements.

This is amazing! I hadn't seen this before; it's really delightful! I wonder who had the time to put together such an incredible pastiche. It's like Ninja Burger, or the Yes Men, or Spinal Tap in the thoroughness of execution. I love all of the links to other pastiche sites, and the goth "calligrapher", and the custom type projects. (A logo for a local band. Brilliant.)

I'm curious to know what the end game is for this project. Bravo!

Nice work Choz.
What can I say, other than what I'd say about any foundry -- I like some of the faces!
Well, you do things differently, and I admire the breadth of your have-a-go-ness, such as Typosium and the Snark.
More fonts, shop, and type tester. But so much work to do.
Good luck with it.

Thank you for your constructive input in this thread NewGuy. This certainly is the kind of mentality that we need here.

Mr. Schmal, thank you very much. I have enjoyed reading Typophile for a long time, and am happy that my comments are being well received.


PS; Kudos to Mr. Shinn for playing along!

Thank you, Nick. More fonts are coming, and that is what matters most. Yes, the site is in deep need of a type-tester, but I haven't determined the best approach to implementing that. Fortunately things are very modular. My interim device is a series of thumbnails for each face, hopefully online by next week.
