Fonts! Fonts! Fonts!

29Jul08
  • Nostalgic for how The Straits Times masthead looked like before Trajan? Click here! You might also want to read about a blogger’s thoughts on that redesign four years ago as well as a mention by Newsdesigner.
  • Thanks to Linotype Fontexplorer X, I was able to scan a PDF copy of TODAY and tell you that the redesigned newspaper uses the following fonts
    • Sans Serif — Corbel Bold
    • Headline — Minion Pro
    • Body Text — Gulliver
  • Ever wondered how fonts would be like if they were personified? Check out this video of a Font Conference. It’s totally hilarious!
  • If you’re still not grossed out by how I’m raving about fonts, this site is for you. You might want to consider buying something from here as well.
  • Finally, if you loved the documentary Helvetica (Yes! A film about the font!), you want to check out Gary Huswit’s next film, Objectified.
