TYPO Berlin 2013 »Touch«

Touch is more intimate than thoughts

16 18 May 2013

In addition to its functional mandate, design has also always had the job of touching people. Design should make objects and graphics attractive, make people feel they would like to touch them, make people want to have them around. In this relationship, surfaces constitute the interface between object and user. This is especially true of digital interfaces, which nowadays really are in permanent contact with the user via touch screens, which render the relationship between person and digital appliance a particularly intimate one. TYPO Touch is dedicated to the touching aspects of design.
