50 Choice Typefaces for Designers – What’s Your ‘Body Type’ ?

[strong-heading url=”#” ] The Typographical Principle//+[/strong-heading]

 

The Typographical Principle, that is the creation of a complete text by reusing identical characters, was first realized in the Phaistos Disc, an enigmatic Minoan print item from Crete, Greece, which dates between 1850 and 1600 BC.

 

The essential criterion of type identity was met by medieval print artifacts such as the [highlight-blue]Latin Pruefening Abbey inscription of 1119 that was created by the same technique as the Phaistos disc.[/highlight-blue] Modern movable type, along with the mechanical printing press, was invented in mid-15th century Europe by the German goldsmith Johannes Gutenberg.
 
Typeface Principle
 

Typography with movable type was [highlight-blue]separately invented in 11th-century China[/highlight-blue]. Metal type was first invented in Korea during the Goryeo Dynasty around 1230. In contemporary use, the practice and study of typography is very broad, covering all aspects of letter design and application.

These include:

  1. typesetting and type design
  2. handwriting and calligraphy
  3. graffiti
  4. inscriptional and architectural lettering
  5. poster design and other large scale lettering such as signage and billboards
  6. business communications and promotional collateral
  7. advertising
  8. wordmarks and typographic logos (logotypes)
  9. apparel (clothing)
  10. labels on maps
  11. vehicle instrument panels
  12. kinetic typography in motion picture films and television
  13. industrial design—type on household appliances, pens and wristwatches
  14. as a component in modern poetry

 

Since digitization, typography has spread to a wider ranger of applications, appearing on [highlight-blue]web pages, LCD mobile phone screens, and hand-held video games.[/highlight-blue] The ubiquity of type has led typographers to coin the phrase : “Type is everywhere”.

Traditional typography follows four principles: [highlight-blue]repetition, contrast, proximity, and alignment.[/highlight-blue]

Choice of typeface(s) is the primary aspect of [highlight-blue] text typography such as —prose fiction, non-fiction, editorial, educational, religious, scientific, spiritual and commercial writing[/highlight-blue] all have differing characteristics and requirements of appropriate typefaces and fonts.

Display typography is [highlight-blue]a potent element in graphic design, where there is less concern for readability and more potential for using type in an artistic manner.[/highlight-blue] Type is combined with negative space, graphic elements and pictures, forming relationships and dialog between words and images.

Color and size of type elements are much more prevalent than in text typography. Most display typography [highlight-blue]exploits type at larger sizes, where the details of letter design are magnified.[/highlight-blue] Color is used for its emotional effect in conveying the tone and nature of subject matter.

Typography has long been a vital part of promotional material and advertising. Designers often use typography to set a theme and mood in an advertisement; for example using bold, large text to convey a particular message to the reader.

Type is often used to draw [highlight-blue]attention to a particular advertisement, combined with efficient use of color, shapes and images.[/highlight-blue] Today, typography in advertising often reflects a company’s brand. Fonts used in advertisements convey different messages to the reader, classical fonts are for a strong personality, while more modern fonts are for a cleaner, neutral look. Bold fonts are used for making statements and attracting attention.

The history of typography and typeface lettering is intimately tied to the history of writing, the evolution of letterforms and the craft of the hand. The widespread use of the computer and various etching and sandblasting techniques today has made the [highlight-blue]hand carved monument a rarity[/highlight-blue], and for monumental lettering to be effective it must be considered carefully in its context.

Below we have collected 50 Choice Typefaces geared towards improving the life of your web-design, since Web Design begins and ends with good choice typography by which to make a website effective.
