GK08// Geometry of a Typeface

July 28, 2010

Highly educated Roman people came up with this proportion that made up classic typefaces such as Futura and Neutraface

This is the grid

And then you can modify the grid and start dividing it up into thirds, as a base for Neutraface which has lowriding horizontal strokes!

So grab this grid, modify it, make it your own and show us what you can come up with! Photocopy it and draw with pencil (oldstyle typography!)

Have fun!!
