Logotype + Postcard for Garamond
Project done at RISD Summer Studies
Garamond is the name given to a group of old-style serif typefaces named after the punch-cutter Claude Garamond (c. 1480–1561), who was from Paris, France. 

Garamond’s letterforms convey a sense of fluidity and consistency. Some unique characteristics in his letters are the small bowl of the a and the small eye of the e. Long extenders and top serifs have a downward slope.
Garamond is considered to be among the most legible and readable serif typefaces for use in print (offline) applications. It has also been noted to be one of the most eco-friendly major fonts when it comes to ink usage.
This design emphasizes the fluid form of Garamond.
