Last week, I ran across this great reference tool of Typography Terms and found it so useful, I wanted to pass it on in the hopes some of you might also find it handy. The visual examples and short, sweet definitions make it so much easier to remember how each of these terms apply when I’m designing.

10 Typography Terms Every Designer Should Know

If you are new to greeting Card Design at GCU, or an old pro who wants a little fresher now and then, be sure to bookmark the GCU Community Blog for all our Typography tips:.

Since we’re on the subject, here are a few font specials going on right now you might like to take advantage of:

The Wallington Typeface by Zeune Ink Foundry

Heroe Std by Lián Types

Mr Chalk by Thinkdust

Don’t forget, if you’re looking for great fonts, our blog posts over the past few years are filled with wonderful font choices and many of them are free.

So until next week … Learn … Create … Inspire!

    Thank you for sharing this–I found the part in the article describing the difference between serif and sans serif helpful. I had read about it before, but never quite understood. Now I finally get it.
