TYPOCOM were approached to design an identity for the new mobile web and app company, Iconic Mobile.

As part of its ongoing growth and improvement, the award-winning   Creative Times approached TYPOCOM to redesign their website, to make it   even easier for creative businesses and freelancers to post their own   news, events and opportunities on the site. Our task was to   improve the overall website design interface and enhance the user   experience, paying particular attention to the navigation and the   arrangement of information. Functionality is essential when it comes to   an online news resource, and the Creative Times features a wealth of   articles, features and resources, which on the old site were difficult   for users to access and utilise.  A key feature of the new site   design is a much more considered use of typography. We’ve introduced   big, bold Helvetica and consistent variations in size so that we have   much greater familiarity across the site, along with the use of ‘white   space’ to ensure ease of reading. Orientation assistance is important -   the user will immediately recognise that it is an online news resource -    and social bookmarking, related content and online community   participation links are made clearer.

What makes letters legible?

typographylinks:

At first glance these questions might seem impossible to answer, because reading is a matter of habit. We read best, what we read most. For example: 100 years ago, Germany was divided between people who claimed that either blackletter or the Roman script is more legible and should be used to set German. The supporters of blackletter typefaces claimed, the simple Roman shapes would hurt the eyes and cause fatigue. The supporters of the Roman typefaces claimed that the blackletter shapes are way too complex and therefore hurt the eyes and cause fatigue … But in fact, both kinds of writing can be perfectly legible, as long as we are used to them. It is therefore perfectly natural that we consider the kind of script most legible that we are most familiar with.

In this post, Ralf Herrmann goes into great detail to talk about what makes letters legible, looking at studies and tests that have been conducted.
