Technological evolution gives people the possibility to receive information from different sources by means of various devices. In the field of branding, logos have to be optimized for smart phones, tablets, TVs and desktops and meet users´ needs at the same time. Today, in what is becoming a branding trend, the ability to adapt has assumed more importance given that within the diverse spectrum of current displays and formats a logo has to preserve its personality and identity in a wide range of sizes. Just like webpages, brands adapt and change their visual appearance depending on the width of display devices. For this, in some cases measurements are already taken to reduce logo details and reorganize identifiable elements to avoid losing the identity that characterizes them. In other cases, designers abandoned the old logos that no longer work well today and create more flat designs to suit today´s media. This book features both trends with detailed analysis to help designers make logos that are both useful and stylish in this digital era, through examples of brands with design variants for all types of physical and digital supports in addition to the responsive adaptation of the brand in diverse display formats.

As one of a graphic designer´s most essential tools, typefaces influence the appearance of visual print materials perhaps more than any other component. This essential book explains the processes behind creating and designing type. Author Karen Cheng discusses issues of structure, optical compensation, and legibility, with special emphasis given to the often overlooked relationships between letters and shapes in a font. The book is illustrated with numerous diagrams that demonstrate visual principles and letter construction, ranging from informal progress sketches to final type designs and diagrams. A wide range of classic and modern typefaces is analyzed, including those from many premier contemporary type foundaries. Introductory essays and diagrams emphasize the history of type, the primary systems of typeface classification, the two main proportional systems for type, the parts of a letter, the effects of new technology on design methodology, the optical illusions that affect density and balance in letterforms, and the differences in form between basic serif typestyles. The book provides detailed guidelines for creating serif and sans serif letters, numbers, punctuation, and accents. As design clients increasingly call for original and custom typefaces, ´´Designing Type´´ is a superb reference for both students and professional graphic designers.
