Mathigon is a result of a tiny experiment — "using tools not specifically made for type design to do type design", all characters are made with mathigon/polypad (an online tool for math-related education). It was fun but also very time consuming to make everything work, hence there is only basic Latin glyphs available. :)

Xiaoyuan Gao (She/Her) is a Rotterdam-based freelance graphic designer, image-maker, type designer and the initiator of “notyourtype foundry”. In her practice, she loves experimenting with unconventional approaches to type design and typesetting. She sees type design (making custom characters into a font file) as making a tool for typing, just like a customised typewriter. She also enjoys creating visuals out of found images , which allows her to combine typography and imagery in playful ways.
