Type ResearchPosted: December 23, 2014
As part of our typography project, we looked at different typeface styles, fonts and techniques. Here we researched things such as Serif and San Serif typefaces where a serif is a small decorative piece on the ends of each character.
Other things we looked over where-
-Script – Miniscule – Expanded – Resting – Grotesque
– Italic – Condensed – Clarendon – Superior Letters – Versals Lombardic
-Slab Serif – Gothic – Triangular Serif – Didone – Trifurcated Serif
– Oldface – Transitional – Bifurcated Serif – Vestigal – Roman
-Humanist – Majuscule – Fat Face – Display Face – Ligature
Typography is an expression, using letter forms to communicate. It is the architecture of ideas and making of language.
