MIT AgeLab and Monotype Imaging have produced a viewer-friendly video on recent research findings on typography. In the video, MIT AgeLab’s Dr. Jonathan Dobres, Dr. Bryan Reimer, and Monotype’s David Gould walk us through three recent typographic studies. The video is a great introduction to some of the most current research on glance-based legibility, that is, one’s ability to read and understand text in short glances, as when reading in a vehicle or from a smartphone.
