Ripley

David Massara – Ripley

Ripley considers how to optimize legibility in an on-screen environment; the idea  is to transpose the legibility rules of body text from print to new media. This typeface is a toolbox that combines a multitude of axes to provide the reader  with ideal reading comfort. Furthermore, the font itself is programmed to respond to  light sources. It adapts to ambient surrounding light changes throughout the day, increasing  readability, in order to protect the reader from eye strain. This project confirmed my ambition to continue my career in the fi eld of typography.
