Abstract [sv]

Kommunikation via text har en stor roll i IT-åldern; SMS, mail och sociala medier är bara några

exempel på nya kommunikationsformer. All textbaserad kommunikation lider dock av en gemensam

svaghet, att det är svårt att förmedla icke-verbala signaler med ord. Ingen teknik för att förmedla

sådana signaler grafiskt i text har slagit igenom på bred front. I denna uppsats föreslås uttrycksfull

typografi, som en lösning på problemet. Uttrycksfull typografi betecknar här textpresentation med

variation av typsnitt, storlek, teckenavstånd, deformeringar, rörelse, färg, piktogram.

Denna nya teknik testades på personer som fick läsa texter i form av Facebookinlägg med ambivalent

känslomässigt innehåll. Tolv texter formaterades med uttrycksfull typografi som skulle förtydliga

meddelandet och jämfördes med samma tolv texter utan den uttrycksfulla typografin. Resultatet

visade att majoriteten av formateringarna förmedlade icke-verbala uttryck betydligt bättre än de

oformaterade texterna. Uttrycksfull typografi bedöms ha stor potential att förbättra redan existerande

medier.

Abstract [en]

Communication through text has an important role in the information age. SMS, email, and social

media are but a few examples of new forms of communication. All text-based communication suffers

from the difficulty of expressing non-verbal cues using words. No technology for graphically

expressing these signals in text has reached major success. This essay suggests expressive typography

as a solution to this problem. The phrase expressive typography is used to denote a presentation

method of text with variation of font, size, character spacing, deformation, movement, colour and

pictograms.

This new technology was tested on people who were asked to read ambiguous texts in the form of

Facebook posts. Twelve texts were formatted with expressive typography meant to clarify the

intended message. Their results were compared to the same twelve texts without any expressive

typography. The results showed that a majority of the formated texts were notably more effective at

expressing non-verbal cues than their unformatted counterparts. Expressive typography is deemed to

have great potential as an enhancement for already existing forms of media.
