About

Read the type = a forum and knowledge resource for typographers and scientists.
My name is Chris Dean and I am a typographer. I strive to set text to make it easier to read as supported by research in the domains of reading comprehension and cognitive psychology. I also conduct experimental research designed to support or refute typographic conventions in accordance with objective measures of human performance and empirical data. I am a graduate of the Master of Design (MDes) program at NSCAD University during which time I was under the supervision of Professor Raymond Klein and Hanno Ehses. .
