Adunate Word & Design, playing with type

Since I’m still trying to finish my business logo, I’ve become rather obsessed with type. Typography is a refined art and designers like Louise Fili, one of my favorites, are a highly skilled breed.

Here’s more:

  • Thinking with Type, by Ellen Lupton: Everything you ever wanted to know about type and using it to communicate a message.
  • Mixing Typefaces: Combining typefaces can be hard. This helps.
  • Kerning is the horizontal adjustment of space between letters to improve appearance and readability. Well designed logos and headlines are always carefully kerned and I use this 3-letter method.
  • The font game: a fun way to learn typeface.
