Adobe Fonts, the collection of over 17,000 fonts included in your Creative Cloud subscription, has partnered with Sarah Hyndman of Type Tasting to take attendees on a multisensory journey through type.

Visitors to booth 821 will have the opportunity to see, taste, smell, touch, and hear a typeface inspired by the mood they’re experiencing at the moment. Sarah’s extensive research will help guide you through the station, and you’ll be able to give feedback to let us know if our fonts matched your feelings!

Attendees can also express their disposition through crafting and coloring on typographic postcards, and add them to a large display wall of type over the course of the three days of the Community Pavilion. Stop by and you’ll get some postcards and a notebook with excerpts of Sarah’s book “Why Fonts Matter.”

We look forward to meeting you at MAX and chatting more about fonts!
