learning

Hey there!

I'm a new and learning designer just taking my first typography class. It is something I am really enjoying.
As part of my class, I was assigned a typeface to study and do research on and present as my final project. The face I was given is "Filosophia." It is a beautiful one and I know it was developed by Zuzana Licko of Emigre Fonts in the 1990's. I also know that it was inspired by the classic "Bodoni." Outside of that, I have found very little information on Filosphia itself.

Does anyone know of any books that include information about it or its history? Are there any groups, or communities dedicated to Filosophia? How about any valid websites?

Thanks for the help!

Hello! I'm starting a project for the development of studying materials for children with learning disabilities, and I was wondering if any of you could direct me to (or has any knowledge of) studies on typography for these specific subject.
I was thinking that the most appropriate would be the use of a clear and simple "ductus" but I've never done anything like this and all the help you could give me would be great!
Thank you so much!

Hi everyone,

I was wondering if there are any resources available for CorelDraw users trying to learn Adobe Illustrator. Google has proven fruitless, as it just returns a list of debates about the merits of both pieces of software. I don't care which one is better - I use Draw and want to learn Illustrator too in case I need to use it in the future.

Ideally, I'd like to find a chart along the lines of "INSTEAD OF THIS -> DO THIS". Quick and simple.

Hey all

What's up folks. I came across this site recently and decided to jump aboard.

The idea of breaking down a typeface into its most minute aspects used to seem unnecessary. Coming from a web design background, I chose one of the 11 websafe fonts and pushed ahead.

When CSS came along and positioning became a lot more malleable a component of the design process, I began to see type in a different way. More recently, embedding just about any font into a website has become possible through various means including CSS and XML-injected Flash content. That's when I knew I should take this stuff more seriously.
