Typography

Assignment_01:

3 sets of serif fonts I chose:

begum-lightBegum: It is a Latin display serif typeface with contrast. The ear and loop of g creates kind of a diagonal stress, also the tail of J flows so soft and feels like flying which is just the meaning of my name in Chinese.

ff-algeFF Alega serif: The two loops of letter g are vertically stressed, nice aperture of letter n.

anastas

Anastas: It is a modern, sophisticated and stylish typeface that boarders on the edge of a classic font. The tails/ascenders of each letter are very cohesive in directions and also very thin and soft. Nice thin & thick transitions.

3 sets of non-serif fonts I chose:

posterama-1913
Posterama 1913
posterama-1933-thin
Posterama 1933 thin

Posterama 1913: Near-abstract, angular characters such as the ‘E’ and ‘N’ hint at cubism’s jagged and clashing planes.

Posterama 1933: Lower center of gravity of letter ‘F’ and ‘E’. The tail of ‘J’ is lower than the baseline.

carin-a

Carvin: It uses unfilled shapes for ‘J’,’I’,’N’,’G’,’E’,’F’,’L’, baseline and descender, cap height and x-height are all at the same horizontal lines.

outliner

Outliner: The counters and white spaces within E, F are the same size. Sharp corners are actually rounded, like ‘N’, ‘G’, so there don’t appear any triangles sticking out of the shape when a thick outline is applied. Nice tail of ‘J’.
