By Melissa Goh, 09 Jun 2014
UK newspaper The Times uncovers and explores the history and meaning of the typeface Times New Roman in a short video series titled “Unquiet”—the typeface was initially created in 1931 by Stanley Morison for the newspaper print.
Described as a typeface that “isn't a universal favorite, hard, sharp, formal, even boring”, it is still recognized as a “reader-friendly” font that is able to convey messages and speak clearly for itself.
Almost all the interviewees in the video confessed to never having used the typeface in their works, even The Times “continues to use its custom lettering in the updated ‘Modern’ & ‘Classic’ versions”.
Watch the video below to find out more about the history and future of this classic well-known typeface.
