Dong Yoon Park (MFA DT ’11) just launched a Hololens version of his Typography Insight app, which he created as his thesis project in the MFADT program. Park is now a senior UX designer at Microsoft, which created Hololens.
Typography Insight is a toolkit for learning and teaching typography. Originally released on iOS in 2011, it has been loved by design and education community by introducing new way of comparing, observing and learning typefaces. HoloLens version introduces ‘Type Playground’ where users can place text in the real environment with different styles and sizes. This feature can be used for designing and previewing the architectural signage or logo types. In ‘Type Anatomy’ scene, users can learn about basic terminologies of typography. In ‘Historical Types’ scene, users can learn about historically important typefaces in 3D space.
In our dynamic world, art reflects conditional reality, and design contributes to further development of global societies. At Parsons School of Design, rigorous practice and critical scholarship prepares students to become leading agents of commentary and change.
