The Tale of TIMES (NEW ROMAN).

Recently, I met the Head of Placements at a reputed University. It was related to a page that was created to showcase their work. Initially, he looked irritated and didn’t want to talk to me which is very very unusual cos everyone talks to me !!!

I started digging and it came down to this – “I hate TIMES NEW ROMAN and you have used it on my page”. 

Till then, I have never thought of a psychological / emotional impact a mere FONT could have on a human being. 

According to some studies (as mentioned in Discover Magazine) , Font characteristics such as style, size and color play a role in information retention or recall. This is because font design is vital to our familiarity — or unfamiliarity — with a given word, says Stephen Banham, a typography lecturer at RMIT University in Melbourne, Australia. Experiments have demonstrated a U-shape relationship between font size and memory: Large font items may predict higher recall regardless of font style, but very small font sizes can also introduce a desirable difficulty.
