The AR One type family for augmented reality environments and spatial interfaces.

AR One is a multi-script type family designed for augmented reality headsets. Its low contrast, generous spacing and robust shapes make it work well in busy backgrounds with high readability. The design of letterforms is based on research and thorough testing on various devices ranging from high-end headsets to low-resolution smartphone-based devices. It has optical weights for high and low-resolution duplexed to avoid text reflow, making it easy to deliver a seamless user experience across platforms/devices. The functionality of the text has been tested thoroughly to make the reading experience better even in longer texts.

The ARone family utilises Dwiggins’ m-formula to render virtual shapes which compensate for various distortions and technical limitations faced in AR text. The letterforms are designed for high legibility and they have distinct shapes to avoid any confusion between commonly misrecognized letters. The spacing and width of letters are optimised for negative polarity (light text on a dark background) and angular distortion. All the shapes are anti-interference (thin outline around letters) technique compatible, which is recommended by researchers for better readability.

Note: The design is intended for AR-specific usage so the letter shapes are adapted based on how they render in the AR environment.
