An exhibition to launch a new typeface for OMSETYPE by exploring the graphic possibilities enabled by emerging technology – from variable fonts to augmented reality. Using the medium of augmented reality we communicated graphic/visual ideas through spatial typography. Enhancing the users experience we incorporated live data within posters and placeable 3D objects. The exhibition was a social experiment in itself, experienced entirely through smartphones via the Agenda 2020 app.
CONTRIBUTORS: Briton Smith, James Kape, Tom Schwaiger, Ben Chan, Malone Chen, Serafim Mendes and Oliver Ellmers.
