Researching the psychology of fonts

Posted in psychology of fonts, psychology of typefaces, Sarah Hyndman by Type Tasting on August 22, 2014

Graphic designer Sarah Hyndman looks at typefaces from the type consumer’s point of view under the banner of ‘Type Tasting’. Her book The Type Taster will be published later this year and she will be talking about typography during the London Design Festival at the V&A.

Sarah explains that “I’m researching the psychology of fonts and typefaces from the type consumer’s point of view. I’ve created a series of fun and thought provoking surveys as part of my ongoing research. These explore how we all respond to typefaces, how they stimulate different senses, trigger memories and what different personalities they have. I’m especially interested to know what non-designers think”

The challenge is to take one of the quotes about design from the supplied list and spend an hour, no longer, representing it graphically. My submissions are somewhat ‘before and after’.  For full brief click here.
