Prototype 4 : Overlaying Comparison

In this prototype, I began to leverage the adjustable opacity by applying it to the typefaces. By making two different typefaces translucent and overlying them on top of one another, the user can compare their detail differences in form. This is especially helpful in comparing typefaces that fit in the same category of typeface, having similar characteristics, but also subtle design differences. This was a quick prototype made with translucent PNG images.
