Short Message Services like Whatsapp or e-mail have notably increased the amount of misunderstandings of intention. Combined with my frustration of emoticons, I felt the need to create a typographic way of showing the underlying intention of the sender. For this, I have researched emotions and their involvement in art and typography. I have also interviewed professionals and tested for feedback with people who have no particular interest in typography. This allowed me to create the base for my font in which the senders intonation is translated into the design. This idea is incorporated in a (typo)graphic installation – where I strive to leave an imprint on the eye of the beholder.
