Typographic ornament


demo 3 screen capture at 25% title: Typographic ornament
designers: Si Daniels and Geraldine Wade

These Microsoft Internet Explorer 4.0 specific pages use three fonts. Geraldine Wade's Kingston Inline font is technically a symbol font as the lowercase letters are replaced with animals. This font is used on the first page of this two page demo. Both pages use Geraldine's Border Web ornamental font for the borders and Runic MT Condensed for the text promoting the fictitious events. Kingston and Runic are available from Monotype, who will be releasing Border Web in the future.


The design process

These pages use HTML tables to achieve checkerboard patterns, which are colored and filled with various symbols taken from the Border Web and Kingston Inline fonts.
