THE SEVEN CHAMPIONS OF TYPOGRAPHY

___

Typography is what sets a professional apart. Skills like kerning and leading are essentials. During the completion BFA design program, I typeset one of the chapter 7 of The Seven Champions of Typography for the typography class.

Typography is what sets a professional graphic designer apartment. No matter how one can be an expert with Photoshop and inDesign, one is not a real graphic designer until he/she master the skills of typography. Skills like kerning and leading are essentials. Apple Macintosh is such a great success was because Steve Jobs studied typography and he knew what makes good-looking/efficient design for his customers. During the BFA design program, I typeset one of the chapter 7 of The Seven Champions of Typography for the typography class. I chose the serif font Georgia because I was typesetting texts that were written in 1920s. San Serif fonts are too modern, in a way, non serious for this project. The kerning and leading were adjusted so it gives a balanced feel to each page. The pink fonts on with the light yellow color of the paper radiates a mild warmth, which is a signature design of me. The strip of transparency that bounds the chapter book serves as aesthetic as well as a bookmark for readers.
