Moving Type & Typography

The emergence of personal computing devices offers challenges and opportunities to improve reading on screens compared to reading on paper. Animation has the potential to support the redefinition of legibility and reading on digital displays for specific readers through typographic and type design.

READSEARCH is setting out guidelines for animation within letter forms and words. In addition, technologies such as variable font technology are in extensive development, and internet browsers can support this technique.
