This is a comprehensive guide to creating and using digital type, both in print and for the Web. An introduction offers a brief history and discusses font classification and software. Step-by-step explanations are provided for creating a wide range of type effects: drop shadow, wood block style, bevel, gradient, fading type, type on curves, perforated type, and many more. Designing type for the screen presents a new set of challenges, including editable HTML, type as image and how to choose fonts, type size and colour. A chapter on creating your own fonts discusses how to get the most out of industry standard software - Fontographer, Scan Font and Font Studio - and describes how to build up letterforms and refine them in Photoshop or Illustrator. Numerous creative approaches to font design discussed here include: amending existing typefaces, combining typefaces and creating fonts out of found objects.
