Emmanouil Kanellos and Anastasios Maragiannis, PhD researchers, are co-founders of TERASlab; an online virtual project that demonstrates how the amalgamation of virtual typography and visual sound, influences the process of design communication, within creative media practices. One of the key roles of typography is to visually communicate spoken language. In this project letterforms are employed as visual elements to represent the sounds. The sounds that are utilized for the experimental projects are mainly real world recordings, electro-acoustic or vocal.
