Matching Typefaces :)

Times New Roman goes to the description: a serif typeface commissioned by The British newspaper the Times in 1931.

Goudy Old Style goes to the description: was one of the typefaces originally included by Apple Computer in the Macintosh. In the early days of desktop publishing it gained great popularity until it began to be replaced by Times Roman.

Futura goes to the description: a graceful, balanced design with a few eccentricities, including the upward-curved ear on the g and the diamond shape of the dots of the i,j.

Palatino goes to the description: derived from a single geometric forms (near-perfect circles, triangles and squares) and is based on strokes of near-even weight, which are low in contrast.

Thursday Favorite! #3

Yes, my favorite typeface is Tahoma. I like it because it big, and easy to read. It also has an awesome type. Yes i hate Times Roman, because you have to use it for everything! I really don’t think there is a huge difference. They all look the same.

Friday Favorite #2

Archer is a geometric slab serif. Gentle curves, bouncing ball terminal, and  a nod to antique tradition, soften its authoritative strokes. Eurostile is a square sans-serif. The t and f crossbars extent to the right and k/K’s  diagonals do not touch their vertical, among oddities. Archer is a slab with praises circles, while Eurostile is a sans  that follows widened squares. Archer and Eurostile know their shapes.  Archer’s lighter weights open forms, and tall ascenders find company in Eurostile’s thick monolinearity and compact letters.

Itc century is a very popular typeface. They have used this in many things like the schoolbooks, and the court justice building. It has been a lot of help over the years by being very legible. Lino letter is a slab serif was released by the linotype corp. Lino letter is also constructed for high legibility with its large counters and tall x-heights. It is used by newspapers. Itc century and lino letter are similar in some ways, they are champions of the identity of the serif. Their common slender forms, large counters, and high x-heights are fit for extensive printing. They both are big in legibility that is always the biggest concern.

Univers is a neo-grotesque sans-serif conceived as a total system for both metal and photosetting. Univers’ simple, homogenous structure is legible from afar and appropriate for long text.  Apollo is an old style slab serif. The design includes a range of highly legible typefaces.They are both designed to do photo setting. Apollo’s sharp terminals and closed forms, but they share equivalent x-heights. The designed within ten years of each other by the same swiss designer.

Anatomy of Typing

This picture shows anatomy of typing by showing different parts of the letters, What we did was that we wanted to show a couple of examples to show what each part of the letters we called. When we did this I didn’t even know what this was, I didn’t even know that each letter have specific parts. But this was very interesting to learn I learned something new.

We feel that this picture is balanced. It has the right enough color to balance it out. It also has enough blends of coloration, which means that each color goes together which makes it look balanced. It also has enough emotion and texture to make it well-balanced.

Anatomy of Type

I learned the different parts of different letters. And what they are called. I also learned how to divide letters and fill them in with Illustrator. And I also learned that it is very hard to divide the letters. 🙂

Typefaces :)

Typefaces are patterns, texture and prints. They are saying you will have to type again and again all through your life. So why not make it interesting? Typefaces that talk and type that expresses emotion and creativity. It’s purpose is to make typing more fun than most people think. To give different designs. 🙂
