Design360°Magazine No.89 Typeface Experiment


No. 89  Type Experiment 字體實驗

Text is a unique part of graphic design. It covers all visual related content like brand logos, product packaging, event posters, etc. However, designers’ desire to explore the possibilities of typefaces are not easily satisfied by merely catering to the needs of the clients. During work and daily life, more and more designers are collecting their “funny” ideas as inspiration, with which they will then find proper time to experiment, using open and various design thinking.

In these typeface experiments and activities, typeface has surpassed its original definition. Stepping out of its job to accurately convey information, it has become a way for graphic designers to observe and think. While these type forms and discoveries may yet to be put into actual use, the results of these attempts may inspire the birth of other experiments, and thus further broaden the definition of graphic design. Meanwhile, when designers extract certain content from experiments and gradually form a systematic logic, they will become a direct and powerful “weapon” for self-enhancement. As for what a typeface design experiment should be made of, there is no authoritative explanation or accurate answer. However, with the growing of the industry and more and more designers start to involve in the delicate art of “experiment”, its boundaries will be constantly reinterpreted. Experiments in this sense may also provide designers and readers with a new way to interpret things.
