Using a selected font - Archer in my case - students have to come up with successful ways to present its uniqueness. Strategies are used such as showing the parts of certain letters, telling the inventors name and background, and involving the classification of the font. The font study consists of a set of 2 posters which must compliment one another. There are a few things needed in each poster to make the study clear and successful. The first poster must include the name of the font, classification, a blurb about classification, and 12 characteristics of the alphabet.
To add, you must show the full alphabet, numbers, and symbols somehow. The second poster must include the inventor(s) name(s), date of birth, and at least 1,000 words about the inventor and/or font. To add, a short quote about the font is needed. In my series, I combined the 2 posters' components and did not keep them completely seperate. For instance, I have the 12 characteristics on poster 1 and 2.
I may want to mention that the series of posters do not stand totally alone, however. One more thing is created to enhance the process - an animated GIF. This is the first thing you will see below. It highlights certain parts of my letters using my font, Archer. Overall, the purpose of this study was to inform viewers of the specific font, persuade them to desire to use it, and to get them to understand why the font is different from others. Archer is now unique, attractive, and one of a kind in my eyes thanks to this project.
