Quality type: how to spot fonts worth your money
Member Ric… posted a news entry in Typography Weekly #104“Graphic designers play a fundamental role in visual communication, whether in print or digital format. They sit between content and reader and, for better or worse, they shape the way the public interacts with information. So when graphic designers choose typefaces they have a responsibility to the reader that should be taken seriously.”
Wake up & smell the fonts
Member Ric… posted a video in Typography Videos“Sarah Hyndman shares with us a story of type and invites us to consider our emotional response to the printed word. Each font/typeface has a personality that influences our interpretation of the words we read by evoking our emotions and setting the scene. We all understand this instinctively but it happens on a subconscious level. Sarah shows us that conscious awareness of the emotional life of fonts can be entertaining and ultimately give us more control over the decisions we make.”

Book with collection of the most common typefaces (fonts)
Member The… posted a topic in TalkHallo everybody, I really like to have a handbook with the most common fonts collection to have a speed visual reference( as starting point) to choose a typeface for every project. I mean something which shows the most common fonts (number, symbol, character, families, ...). There are many online resources but in this case a paper book would be perfect! Suggestions?
