D e s i g n

The creation of a "plan or "convention for the construction of an object, system or measurable human interaction (as in "architectural blueprints, "engineering drawings, "business processes, "circuit diagrams and "sewing patterns). Design has different connotations in different fields (see design disciplines below). In some cases the direct construction of an object (as in "pottery, "engineering, "management, "coding and "graphic design) is also considered to be design.

Designing often necessitates considering the "aesthetic, "functional, economic and sociopolitical dimensions of both the design object and design process. It may involve considerable "research, "thought, "modeling, interactive "adjustment, and re-design. Meanwhile, diverse kinds of objects may be designed, including "clothing, "graphical user interfaces, "skyscrapers, "corporate identities, "business processes and even methods of designing.

Thus "design" may be a substantive referring to a categorical abstraction of a created thing or things (the design of something), or a verb for the process of creation, as is made clear by grammatical context. "(full article...)

A Specimen, a broadsheet with examples of typefaces and fonts available. Printed by "William Caslon, letter founder; from the 1728 "Cyclopaedia.

In "typography, a typeface (also known as font family) is a set of one or more "fonts each composed of "glyphs that share common design features. Each font of a typeface has a specific weight, style, condensation, width, slant, italicization, ornamentation, and designer or foundry (and formerly size, in metal fonts). For example, "ITC Garamond Bold Condensed Italic" means the bold, condensed-width, italic version of ITC Garamond. It is a different font from "ITC Garamond Condensed Italic" and "ITC Garamond Bold Condensed," but all are fonts within the same typeface, "ITC Garamond." ITC Garamond is a different typeface from "Adobe Garamond" or "Monotype Garamond." (These are all alternative updates or digitisations of the typeface "Garamond, originally created in the 16th century.) There are "thousands of different typefaces in existence, with new ones being developed constantly.

The art and craft of designing typefaces is called "type design. Designers of typefaces are called "type designers and are often employed by "type foundries. In digital typography, type designers are sometimes also called font developers or font designers.

Every typeface is a collection of "glyphs, each of which represents an individual letter, number, punctuation mark, or other symbol. The same glyph may be used for "characters from different scripts, e.g. Roman uppercase "A looks the same as "Cyrillic uppercase А and Greek uppercase "alpha. There are typefaces tailored for special applications, such as "map-making or "astrology and "mathematics.
