How Type Design Impacts the Future of Our Screen-Based Devices
Monotype's Nadine Chahine shares research on the role of type in our future and how 'the glance' is the new currency
Due to the avalanche of information we receive daily through our screen-based devices, the very nature of how we read has changed. We’re not just reading a book or browsing an iPad on the couch at home. We’re reading while we’re walking, driving or even waiting for the elevator. Since it’s an entirely different process, people are designing for those experiences.
Award-winning type designer and researcher Nadine Chahine spoke at this year’s TYPO San Francisco design conference to discuss the role of type and how the research at MIT AgeLab is impacting the design for the many screens in our future.
