Sketches #2: Letterforms

Image

I thought tracing the fonts was a good way to actually see how they differed. Each of the different fonts has their own unique style:

Comic Sans – An easy font to read, with more curves than the others
Futura – Very much like block lettering
Garamond – A bit more styled than Times New Roman and also has very pronounced “feet”
Gill Sans – Very straight forward with distinctive angles
Helvetica – A very clear font with proportional angles and curves
Times New Roman – A simple font with very pronounced “feet”
