Why We Need New Typefaces for Augmented Reality


Niteesh Yadav

Niteesh Yadav is a type and digital product designer researching typography and standards of future interfaces for augmented reality (AR) headsets. Yadav’s interest in typography and research led him to pursue a master’s in typeface design from the University of Reading, UK. It was there that Yadav started his research on typefaces for AR headsets and designed a type family “ARone,” including Devanagari typefaces for an optimized reading experience across platforms and headsets. Yadav continues to research different headsets and the challenges beyond the design of typefaces. He is currently exploring ways to implement text with capabilities equivalent to modern tools used for designing UI.
