Typeface vs Font

Date Created : Fall 2015

Created for : Typography (GRA1530) - Palm Beach State College

About : The goal of this project was to create a poster that informs the audience about the difference between a 'type-face' and a ‘font'.


The final image created for this project included icons and symbols for graphic programs and systems directly relate to and further the confusion and differences between a 'typeface' and ‘font'.

 

The symbols and iconography are intentionally added to illustrate the continually blurred distinctions between traditional manual type-blocks used in printing presses, and digital technologies; which do not require the same technical understanding necessary to create traditional printed mediums.


The concept and idea for this project came from the blog post HERE .
