Editorial and East Asian Typography

In this capstone project completed under the counsel of professor Peggy Re, original research is conducted on typographic design. This extensive dissertation culminates in an 11"x17" book.
Beginning with formal studies of Matthew Carter's editorial typeface, Miller, my research expands to the works of magazine designer Roger Black. With the bridge of globalization in the pluralization of society's cyber dimension, I segway into  Eiichi Kono's Latin-Japanese typeface, Meiryo. Extensive consideration into historical foundations of Asian typography as well as modern sustainability of East Asian glyphs are assessed. The union between Roman and Asian letter forms are analyzed with regard to globalization as the emerging typographic frontier.
