Fairfiled, NJ (PRWEB) March 11, 2014
Sign designers and fabricators have a unique opportunity to learn more about typography and its effect on signs in a new, 4-part white paper “Typography, Placemaking and Signs” produced by The Signage Foundation, and sponsored by Nova Polymers, Dixie Graphics, the International Sign Association and Swell Media Group.
The first two series of the Typography, Placemaking and Signs white paper will be introduced to the industry in a webinar scheduled Thursday, March 13th, 2014. Information to participate can be viewed at http://www.NovaPolymers.com/typography.
Series 1 of the white paper presents a fascinating review on “The History of Typography and Place”, beginning with typography introduced in the Roman Empire, the effect of the printing press and the industrial revolution on typography, the modern architectural era to present-day desktop publishing and digital imaging.
Series 2 addresses Dimensional Typography Best Practices and covers detection, discrimination, identity and orientation. These four cognitive approaches define the study of environmental typography that must be considered in the sign design process.
Series 3 (Typography, the ADA and Sign Code) and Series 4 (Typography Case Studies) of the white paper will be introduced in a webinar scheduled Thursday, April 4th. For more information visit http://www.NovaPolymers.com/typography.
