History of compacta (urgent)
0

Hi there! Does anyone have any information about the sans serif font, Compacta? My classmate and I were assigned to this font and are required to do a research on it. So far i have got the year it was created and the creator, Fred Lambert. I need the history of the font; eg. why is it named compacta, how the designer came about this design. We failed this assignment as we did not have enough information and now are given a second chance. Pls pls help us if you know anything or if you have any related links! Thank you so much!!

Ignoring the previous thread and reposting the same question will not give you better answers.

Contact your professor and ask if he/she made sure that information actually is available before assigning Compacta as a research subject. In the case of many fonts there is little or no information available—at least within the means of undergraduate students. Your professor would not be the first person to assign students to research a font that’s effectively impossible for you to research.

You might wish to contact Letraset... and ask if they have an e-mail address for Colin Brignall. He may be of some help.

I did not want to go there Jason. I felt like it would be an inappropriate intrusion.

probably, but as it was only a google away, it was bound to be found, once you mentioned the name
