Ana Albero / ILLUSTRATION Freelance France Strasbourg web designer, graphiste & web développeur Due3 MAREK OKON : DESIGN + ART DIRECTION Type Classification Type Classification There are thousands of different typefaces and fonts available to designers, printers, publishers, artists and writers (as well as the general public) today. There are all types of display and text typefaces and everything in between. Most are available in a digital format from a variety of type foundries and can easily be used, and exploited, with modern computer technology. The vast amount of type available makes specific classification of every one nearly impossible and somewhat frivolous. However, it is important to have an understanding of the basic styles of typefaces to help narrow down the research and selection of the correct typeface. Calligraphic Letters associated with the art of calligraphy and the fonts developed from their production can be classified as calligraphic. Example: Blackletter Examples: Serif Serifed typefaces were popular much earlier than sans-serif typefaces and include semi-structural details on many of the letters. Old Style Transitional Pixel

Herb Lubalin Una de las obsesiones de este su blog de todos ustedes es el trabajo del diseñador americano Herb Lubalin. No puedo evitarlo: me rindo ante su hábil pirotecnia tipográfica y su capacidad de jugar con los caracteres y unirlos con ligaduras imposibles. El diseño de esta década está siendo muy tipográfico y “letracéntrico”, y gran parte de lo que se hace ahora viene a ser un eco de lo que Lubalin diseñó en los años sesenta en revistas como Eros, Fact o Avant Garde. El caso es que con bastante retraso –culpa de Correos y sus cosas– he recibido en mis cuarteles de invierno el último libro dedicado a este Gran Genio del Diseño, que avancé hace unos meses. En fin: el libraco es tirando a muy caro –65 libras– y la edición es limitada –3.000 ejemplares–, pero les diré que el material es bueno. [Si quieren ver más sobre la obra de Lubalin, Quintatinta tiene archivados dos ejemplares completos de Avant Garde, el primero y el segundo.
