Use the following activities to help you solidify your knowledge of type design:
Open LiveMotion, create a canvas, and set type using the Properties palette. Cruise the menu of fonts. Randomly choose a font and determine which category it fits into.
Consider that you are designing headers for a Web site. The client is a rock-and-roll band. The goal is to create a great-looking page that expresses energy and dynamic movement. Choose several fonts from your collection that you might use on this page.
Suppose that instead of a rock-and-roll band, your Web-site client is a classical quartet. Which typefaces will you choose for this design? How do they differ from the ones you chose in the preceding exercise?
Create a typographic logo with your name that expresses your personality. Combine type where appropriate to convey your dominant features: warmth, enthusiasm, shyness, and so forth.
