Design Principles Type Evaluation.
For me looking in type in such a detailed way was really beneficial as it was something that I have been really interested in but have never looked into in this much depth before. Learning about how to distinguish type from each other using the correct terminology will be very helpful in the future, for example I can now name the different sections of a letter and also the style that a font is from gothic to script. Creating a typeface was also something that had appealed to me before and through these workshops I have learnt ways of going around it that I wouldn't have considered before. Like taking an already in use typeface and manipulating it with another to create a new design. The hierarchy of type task was a challenge but also quite insightful as before I never noticed the amount of unnecessary type in some publications.
