Branding, graphic design, typography and web design

I put the call out on Facebook and Twitter recently to see which typographers and calligraphers were inspiring people at the moment. The results were interesting, because very few of them were “typographers” in the true sense of the word, in that, they don’t “arrange typefaces for print”. What they do, is actually use typographic forms in an artistic, or “illustrative” way. In fact, I was interested to see there are very few recognisable typefaces amongst the works of these artists at all, most of them preferring to hand draw their own letterforms from scratch. I’m sure lots of talented people have been missed out, so feel free to add your inspirations in the comments section down below—I’m sure there will be a part 2 to this list pretty soon. Please be aware that the copyright of all these amazing works belong to the artists who made them. 1.

I Love Typography Typography Studies Type That I like Serifs & Sans Five simple steps to better typography – April 13th, 2005 – Typography, I find, is still a bit of mystery to a lot of designers.

But, with the advent of DTP packages and the website design the following are also now used: MillimetresPixels There is an optimum width for a Measure and that is defined by the amount of characters are in the line. CSS and fluid? What is interesting here is fluid designs on the web. The Measure and leading. A simple rule is your leading should be wider than your word spacing. Reversing out?
