Experimentation with Faro
Type Speciman Card
Faro is a typeface created by Swiss type design studio, Luzi Type. As a part of my Typography II course, I was prompted to design a 6" x 9" double-sided type specimen card to promote my chosen typeface.
Using the OpenType features of ligatures and fractions, I highlight the "sad" and "lucky" personality of the typeface, emphasizing the versatility and flexibility of Faro.
As the counters in the letter "a" resemble the shape of a frown and a smile, I follow the shapes of the frown/smile to highlight the dual personality of Faro!
