New to Typophile? Accounts are free, and easy to set up.
I am a Year 1 Graphic Design student and I would like to clear out some terminology issues.
Is the word "typeface" synonymous to the word "font"?
I have heard some people arguing about this matter and now I am eager to know the truth.
Also, some people claim that the word "typeface" is technically incorrect as it is a legacy from the old typesetting times.
Opinions and knowledge are appreciated.
P.S. Sorry if this topic has been discussed. I couldn't find it on search.
I just wanted to know if there was terminology for characters/typefaces that have different weights within one character, e.g. Didot, bodoni etc.
See below image for example.
