Full Auto Foundry is workshop based type foundry that explores the intersection of type design, automation and communal design.
Coming from a fascination of type design and a curiosity of the workings of auto-complete. The intention of the foundry and of the workshops is to explore the concept of designing type without thinking too much about it. How would be to design in a way that you don't plan far in advance, design like you text, for example? What would be the result of an auto-completed typeface? Any idea idea easily rendered real. Thinking and doing, doing and thinking. Or not thinking just doing and still, in the end, you have something real.
Using a series of tools and instructions the outcomes vary in beauty and ugliness, smoothness and roughness. The sketches that people produce are scanned and then go through a process or digital automation: vectorised, imported to FontForge, exported as both a .TTF and a .WOFF and finally uploaded to this website. The typefaces on this site are all results from previous workshops.
