University of Minnesota Twin-Cities
Concept/Purpose of the Work:
Explore Vari is an online learning tool for young designers to see and learn about the power of variable fonts, without the intimidation of working with them on their own. A powerful tool in both web design and traditional media, variable fonts can be used to bring cohesion, hierarchy, and balance to a piece. Explore Vari engages users to interact with typefaces, learn a little about what makes up a variable font, but ultimately lets the user choose how much they'd like to engage and know!
Results of the Work:
This was a final thesis for my senior show, paired with a 3D model of how variable fonts change across axes. It was well received by peers and professors, and a culmination/closing of my love for both design and the intricacies of how things work behind the scenes.
How the Work Was Delivered to the Masses:
The 3D portion of the exhibition was on display at Rapson Hall at the University of Minnesota, Twin Cities, while the website was and remains online at www.explorevari.com
