Future of Typography in Augmented Reality
In this presentation, I will share the challenges of designing/using text from both tech and design perspective. Along with that, I’ll present insights from my research which started at the University of Reading, and how I have been expanding upon it over the years to design a type family optimised for AR headsets. Also, I would shed light on how is the text being implemented in AR at present and what is required to make the text work the way it is supposed to be.
Niteesh is Type and Digital Product Designer researching on better typography & standards of future interfaces for AR headsets. His interest in typography and research led him to do his Master’s in Typeface Design from the University of Reading. Where he started the research on Typefaces for AR headsets and designed a type family “ARone” including Devanagari typefaces for optimised reading experience across platforms and headsets. After graduation, he continued his research to explore different headsets and the challenges beyond the design of typefaces. He is now exploring ways to implement text with capabilities equivalent to modern tools used for designing user interfaces.
