Significant Fonts

4574136682_9d3db1292c

The above photo, posted on Flickr.com by arnoKath, illustrates the art behind using different typefaces. A fonts gallery can seem like a graphic designer’s dream, an endless playground of symbols that can be combined to convey a message not only in words, but also through shapes. But of course, typefaces are often designed for more than aesthetic purposes, and a history lesson in the development of various fonts can be a lesson in technology and social change. So what makes a typeface worthy of being honored in one of the nation’s most prestigious museums?

Well, on Monday, January 24, the Museum of Modern Art in New York announced that it had chosen 23 typefaces to include in its Architecture and Design Collection. The announcement mentions the following criteria as among the reasons why the fonts were chosen:

  • Historical relevance
  • Functionality
  • Social significance
  • Technological ingenuity

These criteria add depth to the graphic designer’s purpose when designing a font or choosing a particular typeface to use in an advertisement. It’s an exciting idea as a graphic designer that you could design a typeface that is both visually pleasing and manages to mark a particular moment or movement in history.

A typeface represents more than just adjusted shapes and serifs for the computer screen, t-shirts, posters, books, advertisements. It represents culture, social change, innovation, and technological progress. Check back later this week for highlights of the digital fonts chosen for MoMA’s collection.

    Great Post, type face is so much more than just adjusted shapes on the computer screen, t-shirts, posters, books, and advertisements. It does represent culture, social change, innovation, and technological progress.
