Newest project (Info graphics)
I hope it speaks for itself…
In this project, we received a typographic term, which we then had to communicate through a photograph.
Here is some background information on the term “Small Caps”:
Small caps, as the word already says, are small capitals, which are mostly used to emphasize a certain word or multiple ones at once. They are used in long pieces of text so that the letters are still the same height as the body and do not seem too large for the page, which capital letters would enforce.You can use small caps to replace italics or bold type.
Small caps are usually the same height as the main body, but can exceed 10% of the “x” height in some circumstances. Small caps can make a piece of text look a lot more reliable if done correctly than by using italics or bold fonts. They are specially made so that they are the same weight as the capital letters. Typefaces such as Garamond, Didot, Gill Sans, Palatino, Trajan and Minion were specifically designed for small caps.
If you were to resize capital letters yourself it would not look the same, but rather out of place due to the damaged proportions. Nevertheless you can resize typefaces to a small caps size on most adobe programmes.
