Universal Principles of Typography is a comprehensive, cross-disciplinary encyclopedia for choosing and using type.

Explore 100 key concepts, theories, and guidelines that are critical for choosing and using type.

We communicate with text every single day, but what does it mean to really understand type — to use it with clear intent and purpose? The art and science of typography combines subtle tweaks to line lengths with harmonious combinations of weights and styles; considered typeface pairings with a robust set of alternate characters; exciting technological advances with the realities of font licensing. There are so many ways designers can optimize how text is read and influence the way its message is understood — and yet so many designers miscommunicate without even realizing it.

Richly illustrated and easy to navigate, Universal Principles of Typographypairs clear explanations of each principle with visual examples of it applied in practice. By considering these concepts and examples, you can learn to make more informed, and ultimately better, typography decisions.

Building upon tried-and-tested principles from the world of print through to the very latest advances in browser technology, this book will equip you with everything you need to make the most informed typographic decisions in your design work today.

Featured principles are as diverse as:
- Characters & Glyphs
- Font v. Typeface
- Hierarchy
- Inclusivity
- OpenType
- Pairing type
- Rhythm
- Web fonts

Each principle is presented in a two-page format. The left-hand page contains a succinct definition, a full description of the principle, examples of its use, and guidelines for use. Sidenotes appear to the right of the text, and provide elaborations and references. The right-hand page contains visual examples and related graphics to support a deeper understanding of the principle.

With Universal Principles of Typography, gain a deep understanding of the universal principles of typography and learn how to apply them across any work you do with type, from the simplest of documents to the most complex of cross-platform design systems.

The titles in the Rockport Universal series offer comprehensive and authoritative information and edifying and inspiring visual examples on multidisciplinary subjects for designers, architects, engineers, students, and anyone who is interested in expanding and enriching their design knowledge.

Graffiti writing was born in the streets of Philadelphia in the late 1960s. But it was in New York in the early 1970s that it became a full-fledged urban art. Passionate about graffiti for 25 years, Woshe tells the reader, in the first section of this book, the incredible story of the birth of this culture. He then invites us to a detailed examination of the 26 letters of the alphabet, their structure and the evolutions contributed by the graffiti writers. Finally, 10 of the most talented creators on the international scene answer to Woshe’s questions about their practice, their relationship to letters, their culture references, and so on. Alphabeatz is both a writing manual, an inspiring ideas box, and a beautiful book on the world of graffiti.

Learn the basics of type design, from sketched letters to finished font, in this uncomplicated but thorough introduction to type design

Type design is often presented in either such detail-obsessed complexity that it is not welcoming to beginners, or it is so simplified with the help of apps and web services that the resulting fonts are virtually useless. This book is different. It will show you how to design professional fonts without having to uncover all of type design’s secrets first.

With easy-to-follow instructions, many examples and professional tips, the book teaches you how to design unique typefaces tailor-made for your own projects or customer orders. Designing Fonts has two parts. Part 1 explains the theoretical, creative and technical basics of type design and font production. Six chapters then cover everything from alphabet to font, showing you how to find and develop typeface ideas, design matching letters, produce fonts and expand them with special functions. Part 2 comprises eight workshops that explore how to design and implement different kinds of typefaces, from decorative interlocking display fonts with alternative letters to well-developed headline fonts with multiple cuts and OpenType features.

Contents List:

Introduction • Type Design Basics: What are Fonts?; A Professional Font in 9 Steps • Designing Type: Letterform Anatomy; Tools and Letterforms; Developing Type Ideas; Formal Relationships; Optical Corrections • Creating Fonts: Getting to Know the Software; Analog –> Digital • Producing Fonts: Expanding Fonts; Setting the Side-Bearings; Exporting Fonts • Programming Fonts: OpenType Features; Writing Code; Instructions for OpenType Features • Workshops

The lack of a specific and comprehensive guide to type design has long been a frustration for typographers, graphic designers and students. 

Designing Type finally addresses this important need – and brings new depth and insight to the art and process of developing a typeface. 

Copiously illustrated with type specimens and diagrams demonstrating visual principles and letter construction, the book discusses structure, optical compensation and legibility, with emphasis on the often overlooked systematic relationships between letters and shapes in a font. A wide range of classic and contemporary typefaces are analysed, and examples of student work, progress sketches and final type designs are used to demonstrate core issues. 

In light of the rapidly broadening market for original and custom typefaces, Designing Type is a valuable reference for both experienced professionals and novice designers.

Designing Type is a comprehensive guide to type design is hailed as a ‘must-have’ for typographers, graphic designers and students and has been fully refreshed and updated with the introduction of more contemporary typefaces, more explanatory diagrams and a closer connection between text and corresponding image.

The new edition of Designing Type also features more in-depth discussion of the processes behind developing typefaces and the basic issues that need to be taken into consideration such as visual principles and letter construction, optical compensation and legibility, and the relationships between letters and shapes in a font.

When it comes to building a brand, logo design is often one of the first few important steps in the creative journey. In addition to encapsulating what the business stands for and making an impactful first impression upon launch, it has to be instantly recognisable and stand out amid other similar offerings in an often saturated market. With so much more competition to contend with today, how can designers help start-ups and evolving brands put their best foot forward visually?

A key branding element used by many of the biggest companies around the world, a logotype revolves around a company’s name or initials and features typography as the main design approach. Often the starting point before it is further refined into a purely symbolic image or icon, it combines two distinct design disciplines to differentiate brands from one another – a process that takes acumen, skill and empathy. From Type to Logo details some of these processes in a compelling book of case studies that make an inspiring reference point for budding and working branding professionals alike.

This book is suitable for those who work with automated text and image design. It shows examples of working correctly on a conceptual level. Exact directions for using all of the grid systems presented (8 to 32 grid fields) are given to the user. These can be used for the most varied of projects. The three-dimensional grid is treated as well. Put simply: a guidebook from the profession for the profession.

The development of organisational systems in visual communication was the service and the accomplishment of the representatives of simple and functional typography and graphic design. In the 1920s in Europe, works already arose in the areas of typography, graphic design and photography with objectified conception and rigid composition. In 1961 a brief presentation of the grid with text and illustrations appeared for the first time in an earlier book by the author. Articles published mainly in trade journals then followed.

This book now attempts to close a gap by giving examples and exact directions to the professional concerning all grid problems that can occur.

The author, a world-renowned professional, thus offers his colleagues the tools to solve problems more easily.

Типографика, каллиграфия и леттеринг занимают особое место в мире дизайна. Они позволяют создавать уникальные шрифты и красивые текстовые композиции, которые могут улучшить визуальное восприятие любого проекта. Ближе познакомиться с искусством составления оригинальных надписей помогут книги, собранные в данном разделе интернет-магазина DesignBook.UA.

Из нашего электронного каталога можно недорого заказать издания с доставкой по всей стране. Книги охватывают широкий спектр направлений дизайна. Большая часть написана на английском языке и имеет красочные иллюстрации. Цена каждого издания указана в описании, на странице товара есть также аннотация и информация об авторах. Сколько стоит отправить заказ по нужному адресу, определяется тарифами “Новой почты”. 

Как выбрать литературу о дизайне текста

Для того чтобы пройти путь от начинающего до профессионального дизайнера, вам потребуется специализированная литература. Различные учебники и пособия, пошаговые руководства и справочные издания станут вашими помощниками в деле постижения основ леттеринга, каллиграфии и типографики. Они расскажут о существующих шрифтах и их подборе для соответствия общему стилю проекта, о правилах оформления текста, способах стилизации букв и о многом другом. 

Но прежде чем заказать какую-либо книгу, нужно знать не только ее стоимость. Важно понимать, насколько то или иное издание будет полезно именно вам. Так что для начала следует определиться с понятийным аппаратом. 

  • Леттеринг — это искусство создания декоративных букв и надписей, которые используются для оформления конкретного проекта и создаются вручную либо в 3D-редакторе. Это уникальный дизайн, который нужен для большей выразительности. 
  • Каллиграфия применяется для создания красивых рукописных шрифтов. При этом, в отличие от леттеринга, не используются декоративные элементы, а сам шрифт может находить применение не единожды. 
  • Типографика — более широкое понятие, которое подразумевает комплексное оформление текста: выбор шрифта, его размера и цвета, соотношение с другими элементами дизайна для создания эстетической и информативной композиции печатной продукции. 

Дизайнеру необходимо учитывать свою сферу деятельности, чтобы выбрать те учебники и пособия, которые будут соответствовать его интересам.
