Typography Likes and Dislikes


The letters in this font are easily recognised and is readable. 
The calligraphic style uses a thick downward stroke for the stems of the letters 
and thin decorative lines to connect the letters together.
The letters don't all follow the baseline and looks more like how handwriting does on paper.

The style of the typography is slightly hard to read at first sight.
The style uses think strokes for the stems of the letters and is a bit squished.
The aperture of the letters are small, and the letter counters are small, which give the font a stylised look.

This typography use serifs that are very decorative on some of the letters 
(especially the letter "A")
the arms of the letters are consistent in all the letters. The aperture is wide. 


The style used in this font is hard to read as letters don't follow the usual shape, especially on the vowels. 
All the vowels have an additional line either on up on underneath that make the letter harder to recognise. 
The letter "O" at first sight looks more like an "E". And the "A" has the crossbar above the letter. 

This typography is extremely stylised to the point of unrecognisable letters. 
the use of the white likes and the distortion of the lettering take away the from the what the word actually says. 

The letter design in this one has no counters, which with the squishiness of the letters make it hard to read. 
The defenders off the "g" and "y" aren't consistent with the style. The "g" uses a sharp pointed defender that underlines the letters that come before it, while the "y" is thinker and is curvier and doesn't follow the same rules as the "g".
