Responsive Type: Can a typographical character respond to the context of its user?

2014, Visual language research—The publication ‘Responsive types–New ways of interaction between Type and Media’ examines the potential of variable typographical characters in the age of new media. Primary focus was to reveal new functions how text can correspond in its letter shapes to a reader preferences. A range of experiments and prototypes demonstrate how e.g. reading experience, users movement, reading distance can improve legibility and the overall significance of text.
