Dinamo Name Crawler

Dinamo Name Crawler 3 benches

Everyone knows that a name is the most important part of a typeface. But finding a good name is difficult. Just like with web URLs, most good names are taken quickly. You don’t want to run around with a great font that has a poor name. It makes you both look like fools.

The Dinamo Name Crawler is here to help: It generates names based on your choice of characters. You can crawl the names you like for further information, derivatives, and language translations. Maybe a translation proves to be the better name, or the beginning of a new name crawl?

Font Gauntlet

1 Dinamo Starter Dark Room

Our Font Gauntlet allows you to animate your own variable fonts—to put them to the test (or as some might say, to let them run the gauntlet). Simply upload your file, press play, and then sit back and relax with an animated preview of all your font’s axes combining. Developed by Dinamo’s own Robert Janes.

Dinamo Pipeline

Widely known as the “Netflix for Variable Fonts,” the Dinamo Pipeline allows users to stream any Dinamo variable font that they like. Less a useful tool, and more an RGB-tinted shrine to the various variable projects Dinamo members are currently working on.
