RTWhaego The letters “RTWhaego” are amongst the most common letters which are kerned incorrently. To get the feel of kerning correctly, we labeled and kerned both a serif and sans serif font.

SERIF

Minion Pro was inspired by old style typefaces of the late Renaissance; the highly legible, elegant and beautiful type designs which now find equal use in print or in the digital world. The font’s name itself is derived from the traditional naming system for types sizes: “minion” is between nonpareil and brevier. -

Created by Robert Slimbach in 1990, Minion Pro went through a couple makeovers before becoming the official OpenType Pro version released in 2000, which includes its 64 weights and two widths size variants and full range of Western Language Its varying weights make it an ideal choice for a multitude of projects, whether a caption or a large

Futura created by Paul Renner

Having been created in 1927, Futura has been around for a while. Paul Renner followed the Bauhaus design philosophy that

“a modern typeface should express modern models rather than be a rival of previous design.� http://idsgn.org

Futura was the Apollo Gothic are have their

the first typeface on the moon, arriving with 11 astronauts in 1969. Kabel and Century rip-offs of Futura, and Volkswagen and IKEA own modified versions of it for their logos.

Stanley Kubrik used Futura religiously in many of his films, specifically 2001: A Space Odyssey and Eyes Wide Shut. Also, director Wes Anderson has done the same with his own films, excuseively using it in his artwork, movie credits and even typefaces within his films.

FIRST FRIDAY FLYER

f

I created an interactive business card & flyer combination, small as a credit card so it’s easy to keep, and large enough to see a couple of illustrations.

After selecting a political/environmental issue, we were to research an organization based around our choice and make a promotional poster.

DUST JACKET COVER

Based on an illustration or idea that we already had, or a book we were interested in, we were to design a dust jacket. I chose to do my personal graphic novel.

TYPOGRAPHIC DISEASES With a given text and two grid formats, one being completely up to us, we learned to adhere to a grid.

C O M M O N T Y P O G R A P H I C D I S E A S E S

Various forms of d y s f u n c t i o n appear among populations exposed to typography for long periods of time.

Listed here are a number of f r e q u e n t l y

BASIC

GRID

T y p o p h i l i a

T y p o c h o n d r i a

T y p o t h e r m i a

An excessive attachment to and fascination with the shape of letters, often to the e x c l u s i o n of other interests and object choices.

The irrational dislike of l e t t e r f o r m s , often marked by a preference for icons, dingbats, and—in fatal cases— bullets and daggers.

A persistent anxiety that one has selected the w r o n g typeface.

The promiscuous refusal to make a lifelong c o m m i t m e n t to a single typeface—or even to five or six, as some doctors recommend.

Typophiliacs usually die p e n n i l e s s and alone.

The fears of the typophobe can often be quieted (but not cured) by steady doses of H e l v e t i c a and Times Roman.

This condition is often paired with okd (optical kerning disorder), the need to constantly a d j u s t and readjust the spaces between letters.

The typothermiac is c o n s t a n t l y tempted to test drive “hot” new fonts, often without a proper license.

TYPE CONTRAST To experiment with the power and flexibility of type merely in its appearance, we chose a favorite quote and played with type contrasts.
