Typography – nerd-style

by / Saturday, 06 July 2013 / Published in Typography

Here are some cool bits about the anatomy of a typographic character for you design-nerds. I personally love this kind of stuff. Unless you plan to be a type developer or font designer, this information won’t have very much relevance to what you do in an average day, as a graphic designer, but knowing about letter-forms will definitely give you an appreciation for the art within a typeface. Brilliant and beautiful.
