How to Speak Typography: Terms You Should Know

This is by no means an exhaustive list of typographic terms, but getting to know these and how to apply them will go a long way toward developing anyone as a typographer and designer. Baseline The invisible line upon which the letters of a typeface rest. Letters with flat bottoms (E) are normally flush with the baseline, while curved characters normally descend below it (and also ascend above the cap height). It matters because: Letters which are flat should sit flush with the baseline, while curved letters should descend slightly below it (known as overshoot), otherwise they will appear to hover above the ground the other letters rest on. Cap Height The distance from the baseline that the top of capital letters reach. X-height The vertical distance from the baseline to the top of a lowercase x.

Typographer's Glossary

A typeface that has serifs is called a serif typeface (or seriffed typeface). Some of the main classifications of Serif type are: Blackletter, Venetian, Garalde, Modern, Slab Serif, Transitional, and Informal. Fonts in each classfication share certain similiar characteristics including the shape or appearance of their serifs.

10 Display Faces that Digital Forgot

In this installment, I’ll be looking at display and decorative faces that were somehow left in the archives when the winds of digital technology swept through the dusty vaults of yesteryear’s metal type foundries. Of all the thousands of typefaces that are created each year, the lion’s share are display and decorative faces. That’s because these are easier to create than text faces (almost anything goes), and changing fashion demands novel looks at dizzying speeds.

What I’ve looked for in assembling the faces shown here, though, are those with the key attribute of versatility, faces that can adapt themselves to a host of environments and situations. Once again, for lack of a better organizing principal, I’ll take these on in alphabetical order. Typo/graphic posters. Typography Served. Swiss Typefaces. Clarke – Ten Dollar Fonts.

A tutorial for good typography in InDesign - Setting up a baseline grid

Most designers believe they have good typography but in my experience it is something which is developed through time and experience. I think we all begin our design lives with a desire to be outrageously creative, and only as we mature, begin realise that simplicity and structure is just as, if not more important. In this article, I will go through some simple steps to acheive good clean well structured typography in Adobe Indesign. The first step is to choose your typefont. In this case I have chosen a simple standard font of Helvetica Neue. Next choose how many columns you want the page to be. So we have set up a grid vertically, the next step will be to set up a horizontal or baseline grid, which all our text will stick to. Start the grid at 10mm in accordance with your borders. Now we will add a heading. I shall now add an introduction paragraph in the exact same way.

So thats it, I have waffled on long enough. Type-Finder. Village. Typotheque type foundry - high quality fonts for print and web. RP - Digital Type Foundry. Optimo Type Foundry.
