Hello everyone! This entry will be about my motion graphics project in Flash that introduces the letterform features of a font. After I have researched many fonts, I decide to choose the font BadTyp, owned by Font Bureau.
Next, I will post the introduction of this font:
+ "Lettering artist and graphic designer Leslie Cabarga has been charmed all his life with the eccentricities in amateur lettering, especially those found in logos and sign painting.”
+ In his own words — … “The computer has blurred the line between type and lettering allowing type to become less conservative, less boringly regular, and to allow many idiosyncracies of lettering. With my font BadTyp, I spent years collecting the worst examples of lettering and created a font designed to teach people to recognize the most common lettering mistakes. There is only one basic error in font design and that’s inconsistency.”
+ "The single font of BadTyp combines all kinds of bad combinations, cap and lowercase, thick and thin, serif and sans, to create an intriguing style radiating perverse charm and love of the naive.
