New to Typophile? Accounts are free, and easy to set up.
There have been calls over the last 20 yrs for an updated or new typeface classification system, the most common within the UK seems to be vox, s standards.
Now I would love to pick your brains on this subject as there are questions that I have which I don’t believe can be answered easily or even agreeably for that matter.
I am struggling to make decisions and form opinions on this, and as a very inexperienced student I would appreciate your opinions and knowledge on the subject. I am aware of this subject being covered before but it hasn’t seemed to touch on the questions or answers I have been looking for.
I am will be writing on this subject for my dissertation so please just fire away with anything you may feel is relevant.
Below are a few questions that would be most helpful so I can get an idea of just what typographers in the real world feel, thanks Lou
Do you feel there is a need for and updated or new system?
Do you feel a typeface classification is help or is too restrictive?
What system do you use?
Do you prefer to come up with your own system?
