Gesture – A Family of Typefaces Based on GestureWorks Supported Gestures

Our commercial multitouch SDK, GestureWorks has support for over 200 gestures. To help our users better understand what’s available in the GestureWorks software package, last year we made a poster showing most of the gestures included. The PDF poster and all of the illustrations are freely available through a Creative Commons attribution license. Now, we’ve taken a step further and have put together a font family called Gesture.

This family of typefaces includes three variations of the stroke alphabet and one font of the multitouch icons or “dingbats.”  The font is free (again through a Creative Commons attribution license).  You can find the Gesture font, poster and all of the illustrations on the GestureWorks Open Source Gesture Library page.
