Interested in body language for the written word? Mary Huang’s exciting software project Typeface acts as a 'typographic photo booth,' rendering your facial expressions and head movements into a personalized alphabet.

Want your face in font? Get in front of a webcam-enabled computer, and start working it. The font will adjust accordingly, and if you see something you like, it can be saved and put in PDF form.

Another piece in Huang's already impressive design portfolio, the Typeface software may also be rendered into a downloadable version available in the future. Stats for Facial Fonts Trending: Older & Warm
