5 Suggestions for Typography Finest Practices

This was my first yr at Typographics 2018. Typographics 2018 is a convention for typography fans all over the world, that is held at Cooper Union. There have been panelists from San Francisco, Berlin, Buenos Aires, and Japan; it actually felt like a very worldwide expertise.

I had the possibility to take a seat in on each the convention and TypeLab elements of Typographics. Listed here are a number of highlights from the panels/breakout periods that I actually loved:

1. Emojis = Photos + Character (Jennifer Daniel, Google Emoji)
Emojis are photographs which will translate into totally different meanings throughout totally different gadgets. Jennifer gave an instance about how the “dumpling” emoji appears totally different throughout totally different chat platforms -every tradition has a dumpling!
I discovered an attention-grabbing rigidity on this assertion -emojis ought to have a constant consumer expertise (throughout platforms), but nonetheless be personalised to their customers.

2. Ubiquitous sort is may cause consumer confusion (Mr. Keedy)
Mr. Keedy created Keedy Sans, a well-liked font within the 90’s. The font was thought of “uncool” 10 years later and used all over the place. Keedy sans is used on teenage woman make-up packaging, in addition to winebars. This might create a nasty consumer expertise for individuals due to lack of branding. Final yr, Mr. Keedy refreshed his font -to create larger customization and permit Keedy followers to layer the font for attention-grabbing visible results.

3. Braille is a type of typography (Ellen Lupton, Cooper Hewitt)
Ellen talked about how blind people learn Braille in a novel approach -holding it throughout their physique. She additionally demonstrated a blind individual’s expertise watching music movies by displaying the accessibility voiceover.

4. Model holds content material along with design (Gale Bichler, NYTimes)
Gale foused on how the New York Instances(NYT) has branded itself as a publication that experiments with many kinds of fonts. NYT can mess around with differing kinds and large fonts as illustration. If somebody picks up a web page from the ground, they will normally inform that it is from the New York Instances due to branding.

5. Choosing fonts is like consuming ice cream. (Veronika Burian and Jose Scaglione, Sort Collectively)
When combining fonts, take a look at mechanic and natural feels. Veronika and Jose talked about how individuals like humanist fonts, with a touch of a calligrapher’s hand. Ideally, you need to discover a stability typefaces share a typical language.

The overarching theme is that typography is wide-ranging and crosses numerous mediums. Visible languages embrace symbols, braille, and audio caption. The problem now lies in the best way to design the perfect experiences for these new types of language.
