Week 6

I’m so in love with words and type and typography that this week has been alternately lots of fun and a bit odd – due mainly to the fact that I’ve never attempted to harness an entire font system before, and my creative experience with typefaces has been offline.

I really enjoyed reading about the histories of font production and the various vagaries and missteps in early printing.  Thinking about what I generally like about typefaces and comparing it with the work we’ve been doing this week, I realize that my experiences are almost 100% aesthetic.  I like what looks good.  This, obviously, is a very shallow position.  The number of things that a font can do for User Experience seems limitless!
