This is super impressive, Kevin. I enjoyed your write up - I tried doing the same thing ~ 2 years ago; impressive what you were able to accomplish with VGG16 - this is a way better way of doing it :) my take: http://jon.gold/2016/05/robot-de...

@jongold thanks! This whole project actually just started as a curiosity about whether something like VGG16 could do well in a domain it wasn't intended to do - and it did surprisingly well given the right dataset. I loved your article and the line of thinking from programmatic design. It's really interesting to see how 2 years made such a difference, now with things like VGG16, we can assume that machines already can see, and direct that ability towards new domains in service of new tools.

An excellent way to visualize font. It's always been such a challenge to get a relational feel for different types. Nice work!
