I’m currently researching into how meaning has been embodied into typeface designs. I’m looking for typefaces which have an extensive and purposeful meaning behind their designs. Sufficient enough to write a thousand words about.
I need six case studies in total, so far I have Times New Roman, Capitolium, Johnston and Quantange. All of which I believe have enough existing research and theories into why and how they have been designed in the way they were. Ideally I need two more.
I posted a brief similar question to this many months back during my initial research phase. I was sent in the direction of Nick Shinn and Jeremy Tankard’s work, and FUSE, and they all really helped a lot.
Just wondering if anyone knows any good examples to research? Or if there is any past posts that may help?
