As a designer who loves type design and typography, I have been falling in love with holographic type since I met HoloLens back in 2015. Microsoft HoloLens allows…
Microsoft HoloLens allows you to place and see holographic objects in your physical environment. Just like real-world physical objects, you can place it on a table or wall, you can move around and see it from different angles. Since HoloLens analyzes the environment and remembers the spatial mapping information, when you come back to the specific space, HoloLens restores the digital objects. It feels magical when you see your holographic object stays right there just like other physical objects, even after days and weeks.
Last year, with my love of typography, I have explored spatial text layout in the physical space and introduced two apps for HoloLens.
With Windows Mixed Reality immersive headsets, I have continued my journey, exploring the possibilities of the typography education in the virtual space.

One of the most fascinating aspects of HoloLens was the rendering quality of type. Since HoloLens has higher PPD(Pixels Per Degree) than other AR/VR devices, it renders beautiful sharp text. I wanted to create an app that can leverage text rendering quality as well as physical environment.
