The Anatomy of type

Working with typography in layout

For this assignment, you will need to explain the anatomy of type in a visual way.
You may use a single unique typeface, or utilise up to three different typefaces for this execution. We would like you to experiment with the design; enlarge or reduce the font size, cut out sections of the various letters or overlap parts – as long as the visual message is clearly expressed to the viewer. Choose three different colours for the execution. Out of these three, choose one main colour. The remaining two colours can be used sparingly or as accent colours. For example, description text could be in one colour, and the parts of the letterforms in the two remaining colours. Show at least three terms on each of the sheets, for example x-height, cap height, body size, counter, serif, ascender, bowl, baseline, stress/axis, stroke weight and bracketed serif.
