We were asked to define ourselves through typography by selecting 6 different typefaces, 3 serif and 3 san serif, that says something about myself for week 3 in visual language.
I truly love this font. It's so clean and simple and I love the pronounced horizontal serifs. I used to read Vogue when i was a teenager and I know that their logo is a take on this typeface, so it's very nostalgic for me
Times New Roman
This is a homage to the time I spend in the scientific lab, doing research and writing papers. I spend probably half of my life reading and using this typeface. I know it's not beautiful, but I definitely have an affinity to this serif font.
I feel like the double lines and curves of this font is so soothing, especially in the italics form. The Olympics were always a remarkable and exciting time for me. I loved to watch my country's athletes compete and would often spend many hours in front of the television during the Olympic seasons.
For some reason I'm very drawn to the flatness of the x-height in this typeface. I feel like the name describes it all -- it's a very unique font. I'm not sure I've ever seen if anywhere, but when I found it, it immediately jumped out at me. I am definitely a retro individual and so I feel like this typeface suits me and my character well.
I guess I would refer to this as a sans serif font :) I think this is a font that hold such importance in our society and so I wanted to highlight it here. When I create anything I like to try to keep all individuals in mind that might come into contact with it. I want to strive to be inclusive and I think this font is a great reminder of that.
I think this may have been my favourite typeface that I stumbled across when putting together this assignment. It's so playful. I like the contrast in the letters and the fact that it's in all caps. I am definitely an individual that is, sometimes, BIGGER THAN LIFE, so I feel like this typeface is a great example of a visual characteristic of myself.
Here are all the typefaces that I highlighted above.
