Project 2: Font Mannerisms

Click to view full screen

For this project, we were assigned a font and we had to represent the x-height, ascender, descender and cap height of that font and it’s families.  My font was Adobe Garamond Pro and the four font families were regular, italic, italic bold and bold.

This is a good diagram that illustrates the x-height, ascender, descender and cap height of a letter.

Along with that, we needed to duplicate each font family with the same point sizes and leading in order to see how the different font families are written out compared to one another (see last example). If you look at the last document you can see that each family is portrayed differently even with the same point size and leading.
