The Future of Typography
Over the course of the last 40 years, we have seen more changes to the way we communicate than in the time since Gutenberg facilitated mass communication. We have already transitioned from reading mostly on paper to reading predominantly on screens, and have started to engage with written communication in augmented, virtual, and mixed reality technologies.
Despite the yet unknown and untapped possibilities of these new realities, we must never forget that humans are at the center of this. Successfully designing for new technologies requires careful consideration of our physiological limitations, and as designers, we have an obligation to observe this if we are to shape this future.
