What & How

Visual Fonts are fonts with images embedded. This tool is as easy to use as your everyday emojis 🥳. No prior knowledge is required.

Our first set of fonts is a global map collection called Equal Earth. Just type the name or code of a country. The text will turn into the map you want in no time — even when offline.

Features & Benefits

Versatile and Editable to your needs

Feel free to remix the lines and shapes in Affinity Designer or Adobe Illustrator. Our map vectors are movable and expandable without compromising the resolution.

What’s more, our outline variant* makes it easy to adapt for motion graphics in After Effects. You can even use them to drive CNC routers or Silhouette cutters.

*Available in Work edition only.

Keep your information real

Accuracy is key when it comes to annotation and infographics. Start yours with our precise and reliable maps. 

Our maps are able to show you the size and proportion of areas as they are in reality, along with a sensible selection of physical and cultural features. The magic behind this is the use of the modern Equal Earth projection, with data from the Natural Earth 5 dataset.

Left: Equal Earth projection. Right: Web Mercator (not equal area). Greenland and Africa are highlighted for comparison: in reality, Greenland is some 1/10 the size of Africa.
