Can a font improve your memory? Here is some advice for students starting a new term on how fonts can help your studies, from LCC alumni and former tutor Sarah Hyndman, with a chance to win a signed copy of her book Why Fonts Matter.
Sarah Hyndman founded Type Tasting in 2013. She is a graphic designer, author and public speaker whose area of expertise is multi sensory typography and she is known for her interest in the psychology of type. Sarah’s aim is to make typography accessible to everybody—which she does with originality, humour and a dash of theatre. Her first book, Why Fonts Matter, was published in 2015 and her second, How to Draw Type and Influence People, was published this year.
