Humanizing Products Through Typeface Design
Across three experimental studies, the authors show that using handwritten (vs. machine-written) typefaces on product packaging positively affects consumers’ product evaluations. This effect is driven by perceptions of social presence imbued in the product, which increase consumers’ emotional attachment to the product. Further, the authors examine an important boundary condition.
