Designers today have a vast amount of typographic materials and information at their disposal; so much that presenting the universe of type for in any static medium has become an unwieldy practice.
Today’s typographer has a great advantage though, as their type library exists in the digital realm—a realm which caters to lightning fast, multi-dimensional searching and browsing; one that can selectively display any amount of information, vast or minute, from huge sets of data. The organizing power of the digital realm has made it possible to update a set of information’s relevance in real-time, as it puts power in the hands of the users to help each other understand that information. This world defines itself.
As an alternative to tools currently in use, I proposed to develop a prototype of a new dynamic tool for navigating the universe of typography, which will inherently connect the user with more appropriate typefaces for their needs.
