TYPOGRAPHY... A funny little thing.

According to WIKIPEDIA, Typography is the art and technique of arranging type, type design, and modifying type glyphs. Type glyphs are created and modified using a variety of illustration techniques. The arrangement of type involves the selection of typefaces, point size, line length, leading (line spacing), adjusting the spaces between groups of letters (tracking) and adjusting the space between pairs of letters (kerning).

If you ask me what my most favorite part of my job is, I would answer with just that... Typography. I could sit for hours on end and mess with fonts and all their different faces. Probably explains why I own a sweatshirt that says "KERN". It's just amazing what can come out of type...

We are pumped about seeing our latest TYPOGRAPHY project come to a completion. A huge wall mural will be plastered throughout the Highland Park Family Ministries Building. Installation is happening as we speak. Stay tuned to see the finished product.

  1. I love the typography mural! Would you be interested in selling the design (file) so another church could get a print made of it? My church is looking to update it's community building. Please let me know -
