Type is one of my biggest design passions, and this is a page of some of my type experiments. In my experiments I am looking to explore these questions:
What makes a letter a letter? What shapes our understanding of a letterform? How can we unify communication across languages? What part of communication is innate and what is learned? How can we bring type design into other areas of accessibility? How can we use typography to enhance physical language? How can I design a typeface or even single letterform that elicits a specific emotion?
One of the many projects I am working on right now is a non-arbitrary phonetic alphabet. Systems of this type have been created before (such as Visible Speech), but I'm looking at this challenge from a design perspective. How can one be created that is decipherable by people that don't have extensive linguistic and physiological knowledge?
IN PROGRESS: a geometric typeface I am designing named "jimmy"
