Hello! I’m a junior studying computer science & communication design under the BXA program. Previously, I have written scripts and small programs or indulged in traditional print design, but I’m focused now on merging my interests and really working in the intersection of multiple fields: CS, design, art, creative writing.
I’m interested in: interactive information visualization, computational typesetting, designing methods of trans-media storytelling, & automated aesthetic analysis. I hope to explore some of these areas during the class!
Typeface Grid Game
For one of my sophomore typography studios, we were asked to arrange a grid of characters from a particular typeface, and then develop the static grid into an animation. I chose to develop an interactive grid. When clicked, individual letter squares slide into the empty slot, revealing factoids about the typeface Helvetica Neue. You can double-click on a square to reverse the color, refresh the grid to get new characters, and add in different fonts (roman, italic, bold, bold italic) to the mix.
