Type design is the visual conception and creation of font families. Designing a legible text-based font family is one of the most challenging tasks in communication design. Digital type design is a technological process that combines elements of art, design, typography and applied science. Contemporary typefaces are an important visual component of a company’s corporate identity and corporate design.
The exact meaning of the term typeface changes over time. Modern type design technology can reproduce almost any character from a digital font.
Each font in a family has a specific style, weight, width, italic or roman. The complete set of fonts in a typeface is called a typeface family. The benefits of a professionally designed typeface include a variety of weights and styles, carefully considered kerning pairs, and OpenType features. The most important OpenType features are capitals to small caps, denominators, fractions, ligatures, numerators, slashed zeros, subscripts and superscripts.
