Dongwon Hong is an art director who specializes in design and claims that Hangul (Korean type) is his obsession. From the beginning of the 20th century, Koreans have experienced great progress with IT technology. Hong delivered a fascinating presentation on the design of keyboard layouts and the intensity of each finger we use when typing on a keyboard. We use our second and third fingers with our thumb the most as these fingers have been “assigned the most text.” Think about how we are now using our thumbs more than ever when texting from a mobile phone.
