Typography is a huge aspect of design, and through my three
years at university I have found that how people perceive it can vary
enormously. What is good typography? Is it a matter of opinion?
The basis for this piece of work revolves around
interaction, sets of nine squares of which contain type on acetate sheets. Seven
of the squares are ‘moveable’ allowing people to interact and change the work
moving each acetate square to any position they please.
How type is portrayed can have a vast influence over
what connotations it conveys; whether it is successful or not. I have created a
series of typographic layouts to challenge how people perceive typography and
how they react when given the opportunity to change what they see.
