  1. 1. TRADE GOTHIC CONDENSED No 18, BOLD No 2, VERSATILE No 1.
  2. 2. TRADE GOTHIC HISTORYTrade Gothic was designed by Jackson Burke between1949-1963. Trade Gothic doesn’t really have an excitingbackstory or incredible design uses. What it does give isa very legible san serif (partly due to it’s large counters*).You can findTrade Gothic commonly in bookcoverdesigns, magazines, and newspapers. *
  3. 3. { I associate with it most, not just for its loveliness, but for how honest it is. Trade Gothic JASON SANTA MARIA is sturdy and simple with little flourish or fuss.http://jasonsantamaria.com/articles/if-you-were-a-typeface/ It’s dependable, industrious, plays well with other typefaces, and can often be the anchor for structure to be spun from in a design.
  4. 4. “ Typography must often draw attention to itself before it will be read. YET in order to be read, it must relinquish the “ attention drawn. Words of wisdom from Bringhurst’s Elements of Typographic Style.
  5. 5. “The Hidden Cost of War” // http://www.good.is/?p=12104Notice how Trade Gothic remains very sturdy and constant but the way it’sused compels the audience forward through the message.
  6. 6. Here, Trade Gothic Condensed is used. When using Condensed in titling, you can getaway with using the standard kerning (space between characters) but when usingCondensed in type blocks, give more space between characters to avoid it lookinglike a big black box on your screen.

  8. 8. HISTORY DIN 1451 (aka DIN-Mittelschrift), the first version of this typeface. In 1936, DIN was chosen to be used as the standard for architectural uses, engineering purposes, traffic, administrative and business purposes. This typeface was design to be clean and very legible, which is why DIN is used many contemporary german road signage. It is fairly industrial and be percieved as severe at times, but there is enough playful moments within the typeface so that it can be used in uses outside of “industrial”

  11. 11. GiambattistaBodoniengraver, type designer, typographer, printer, publisher. “Bodoni achieved an unprecedented level of technical re nement, allowing him to faithfully reproduce letterforms with very thin "hairlines", standing in sharp contrast to the thicker lines constituting the main stems of the characters. He became known for his designs of pseudoclassical typefaces.... His printing re ected an aesthetic of plain, unadorned style, combined with purity of materials.” - http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Giambattista_Bodoni
