This chapter delves into the creation of text and its visualization through typographic design inside three-dimensional virtual worlds known as the metaverse, with a particular focus upon the way in which these environments may place the usage of text within a context that stands in contradiction to its traditional one – namely legibility. Readability can be displaced through the usage of text and typography as playful devices that may manifest as visual structures, the contents of which are meant to be understood through means other than reading – as it is understood in the traditional sense of the word. Instead, such spaces are aimed to bring about states of heightened engagement, wonder, and “play” by being immersed within the typographic conglomerations that constitute their essences. This subject is explored through the discussion of three such typographic playgrounds that the authors created in the metaverse.
