Type Classification: A New Approach

How can we teach our students to use typography if we cannot describe it correctly? What’s the point of type classification today? We need a new type classification system that is useful for everyone, whether amateurs, scholars, or professionals. 

This presentation is a type classification proposal for the era of variable fonts. The project was part of the work required for Leonardo Vázquez Conde to obtain his Master in Critical Theory at 17, Instituto de Estudios Críticos.
