Typography: Font design

“IT’S SO MUCH A PART of our daily life that it’s invisible—yet quite visible.”

The quote is from Steven Heller, author of more than 90 books on design and typography, talking about type design. I’d recommend any of Heller’s books to those of you interested in learning more about type and design).

Heller is just one of those interviewed for this 3+ minute piece.

I think you’ll enjoy it. I know you’ll learn from it.

Best of College Design—Front pages

RECENTLY, I WAS ASKED to judge three categories in a Best of College Design contest.

I’m delighted with the entries I saw. Narrowing those entries down to only five winners was difficult.

The following pages are in order, first place winner to fifth place. I’ve asked for a link to the contest web site and I’ll update when that comes.

In the next two weeks, I’ll show you the magazine and opinion page entries.

This week, page 1 entries.
