BFA ComDes
Font Metric Guide

Editorial Design


The BFA ComDes Font Metric Guide is a comprehensive manual that accompanies the ComDes Font Catalogue—a short catalogue given to Communication Design students at Texas State.

The guide compares 50 different fonts to the metrics of Adobe Jenson Pro. It serves as a useful resource to pair typefaces that have common metrics.


The cover of the guide is a crop of overlaid "a" character outlines of the 50 fonts present in the guide. Adobe Jenson Pro can be seen as a dotted line, and the first character to appear in the animation above.


Along with the guide, a branded website makes it easy to find a specific font within the guide. Multiple fonts can be selected to be viewed side by side to compare metrics.
