Through research into design blogs and different design websites I have chosen a list of the top 25 most used typefaces of our time.
From this I hope to question people in the effort to get them to look at the subtle differences between these everyday types. The only question I am asking the public is which typeface they feel represents them.
By using this simple question, hopefully, they will look closely at each font and begin to see the real differences.
The List Of Typefaces
Some Pictures of People So Far . .
Hopefully a fun animation of my research participants . .
Obviously This hideous collage won't be the finished article I am now thinking a short movie could be my outcome with simple movement and animation and hopefully beautiful type displaying all the great words I have collected to describe each type.
