Welcome on m-sign.nl’s next inspirational item. This week item is a special website on fonts, where they have a very basic but good looking and good working education page in fonts. Besides they have .pdfs with tips and typeface anatomy. This is awesome because it is simple and quickly gives the basic information on fonts you want to know, without going to deep into the world of fonts or getting too difficult.
Fontshop’s Meet your Type Guide
This is the basic guide for understanding typefaces and fonts, and works good into your browserscreen (but uses flash).
While the guide is the most important education item on the site, there are some small pdfs with quick tips for using the right typo. Very handy to read and remember these typs as these definitely will improve your feeling for using the right typo. Also in the typeface anatomy is explained what every part in a letter is called.
