  • Final Major Project // Perception of type

      University of Greenwich // Year 3  May 2012 

  • 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.
