It is a collection of computational typographic experiments and researches by the artist since 2005. It aligns with alternative typeface and typography methods, solutions, and education in America. It began her MFA thesis, TYPE+CODE, at Maryland Institute College of Art, in 2007. It has extended to the continuing typography research series from TYPE + CODE to TYPE Portrait. TYPE + CODE explored the aesthetic of code-driven typography by using primarily letter form. The computational visual outputs were original, exploratory, inventive, and novel. TYPE + CODE II used letterform, words, phrases, and sentences to explore expressive typographic forms and solutions using mathematic expressions, computer algorithms, and libraries. It conveys diversified visual messages inspired by nature, addressing environmental issues such as green design, healing through arts, exploring philosophical and religious interpretation regarding life, death, and love. TYPE+CODE III extended the aesthetic of code-driven typography from cyberspace to physical space by using digital fabrication such as laser cutting and 3d printing by using porcelain. Floral Typography is a design trend to combine calligraphy, typography, and lettering with floral visual elements. Floral Typography + CODE reinterprets floral typography to transdisciplinary typography as a generative typography system. A selfie is a form of art. The recent version, Typographic Selfie + CODE, uses diverse typefaces to embed visual expression into generative selfies. It shows possibilities to use each typeface's personality to be expressive and visually appealing in the generative selfies. The typographic researches have embedded into graphic design education as courses, Typography and Code, in Visual Communication Design, at the School of Art Institute of Chicago, from 2012 to 2014, Creative Coding, from 2014 to 2018, at Valparaiso University, and Motion Typography, Advanced Typography, and Creative Coding for Graphic Design, in the Graphic Design program, at the University of Wisconsin Madison since 2018.
