hello, I'm a design student, I have a college project where I am designing a design magazine, I have a Typography section. and I was wondering if you would allow me to use this picture in my magazine. of course it will be credited to you. the magazine is just a college project, so it is not for publishing purposes.

Very nice work. I actually forgot about the finial so this is a nice reminder.

I think you made two mistakes though. 13 is not an ear but a shoulder. The thing at the top of /g is an ear. Also, number 15 is a terminal; the whole descender of /y is the tail, so you should color a bigger part blue.

This is a very simple, easy to understand diagram. Very clean, very structured; it reflects traditional typography well. A tad bit predictable, and there are some areas which could use a little more attention as far as kerning is concerned, but overall it is well executed.

One thing: the counter of your 'p' is labeled as 14, as is the shoulder of your 'h'. You might want to fix that.

:D

One other thing, relating to grammar:

Your general description of typefaces is good, but I would rewrite it to say 'Typefaces, like most things, are made up of constituent parts; the characteristics of these parts give typefaces their character.' If written like that then some of the super minor grammatical errors disappear. (Other than that, there is only the small matter of having 'characteristics' describe 'character'; consider a synonym for character, such as 'individuality' or 'distinctiveness'.)

I know you didn't ask for a critique, but I hope I have helped!

This piece is quite easy to look at, and overall I get the feeling that you paid attention to what you were doing. So, again, good work!

You've made a simple, direct, uncluttered reference aid. Even if most of those terms are rarely used outside of typeface design, I've found they do help at times when explaining typefaces' differences to clients. Very worthwhile!
