Let me introduce you to Elmer. We met in typography class last week. He loves peanuts and cheddar cheese (though he’s been rather reluctant to indulge in the latter recently; he’s watching his weight). He also has an affinity for beautiful fonts and smart design.
Elmer was part of an in-class exercise to create an animal using only type. The exercise helped us recognize and appreciate letters as shapes, lines, and beautiful forms.
