Introduction to multisensory typography

INTRODUCTION TO MULTISENSORY TYPOGRAPHY

Interactive event (Zoom)
with multisensory activities

Learn the science of designing for all the senses to make your branding more memorable

This is not just a font, it’s also an idea, a smell, a song, a memory, a feeling, a personality, a warning, a taste…

The different shapes and styles of the typefaces that you read every day create responses in your brain that link to all of your senses.

Learn how typography interacts with all your senses and how it can even alter what you experience. Sarah will talk about some of her research and you'll take part in multisensory demonstrations. 

Find out about the research Sarah has co-published with Professor Charles Spence from the University of Oxford, and take part in a version of the demonstration done by Heston Blumenthal based on her work.
