Exploring the relationship between speech and typography.
My senior degree project at the Maryland Institute College of Art explores the relationship between speech and type through the creation of a tool that can help typography carry meaning more effectively.
By varying typographic forms with fluctuations in speech, users can see how a sentence is said just by looking at it, allowing words to speak for themselves.

Spoken language is complex, with varying tones and points of emphasis, all of which can drastically affect the meaning of a sentence. By collecting samples of sound data, this project aims to visualize these nuances.
