Reactive Book Series
Interactive typographical figures: letters that come up, multiply and move to the rhythm of a typewriter.
With a background in both engineering and graphic design, John Maeda has pioneered a new direction in graphic design that takes full advantage of the algorithmic power of computers. Not content to use canned software packages, he writes his own code to create interactive pieces like Tap, Type, Write, an homage to the typewriter from the digital era. His work is both minimal and humane, sophisticated and child like.
