It’s 2011; why are we still using type technology developed in the 1980s? That’s the question we ask in the ComplexType project, where we are exploring how to integrate interactivity, variability, network connectivity and data computation into the core capabilities of digital typography. This talk will present art and design work made with ComplexType fonts, as well as debut the cross-platform version of Mr. Softie, our experimental »typographic text-editor«.
