How effective is typography on mobile devices?

Since writing my dissertation, it's stayed hidden from the world. I've always been to afraid to share it. However, I've decided to self-publish it online via Google Documents.

The subject is something that I have an active passion about and would love to hear your thoughts and comments.

Font Lorry

My name is Nathan Monk. I'm a third year student at Birmingham Institute of Art & Design (BIAD, UK), co-founder and director of Smile Creative Consultants ( and now, creator of Font Lorry (

Font Lorry is my 3rd year negotiated project. I am looking for your help so first I will tell you a little bit about the idea;

"I intend to create an online distribution platform for emerging typographic talent. Whilst at first this may appear to be a font foundry, I believe I can make this into a viable structure for typographic goods of all natures.

I will turn Font Lorry into a reliable distribution channel for designers to get original content noticed by a global audience and increase future interest in their work.
