The typeface is introduced by itself, but here is how he describe it:
“Conceived as an exploration of geometrical typedesigns of the early 20th century, Canaro developed into a font of that period with a modern streak. The lack of spurs provide a unique but unobtrusive appearance and support the contemporary character. In addition, the open shapes in combination with a tall x-height, create legibility in small text sizes. Typographic features like alternative lettershapes, ligatures, oldstyle numbers, arrows, fractions, special characters and many more, round up the whole family. Canaro is available in nine weights plus matching italics. Ranging from sharp and elegant thinner cuts to sporty and athletic heavy weights.”
Today we got some nice typography artworks for your body. These nice designed shampoos and cremes are not only protecting, covering and rejuvenate your skin but also have a great expression of typography on it. No matter if you like it ornamental or handwritten, every style of typography good fit the product. We think mostly for younger products more handwritten and selfmade fonts are used and for the more serious and fine skin more ornamental lines and forms are fitting better. But a sans serif could be the compromise between those two. At the end also the flavor has to fit and that’s where the taste gets subjective.

Designers often look to the past for ways to enliven their projects. Letters with relief and shadow have long been an effective way to add spectacle or intrigue to otherwise mundane words. Introduced in metal type as early as 1815, shadow typefaces were a form of early experimentation among type founders. In the late nineteenth century, the form was adopted in wood type for use in posters and has been embraced ever since by designers looking for ways to communicate a sense of monumentality, a feeling of confidence, or a simple impression of optimism. Shadow Type presents a broad spectrum of examples—advertising, shop signs, billboards, posters, type-specimen books—featuring the most popular, rare, and (nearly) forgotten dimensional letters from Europe and the United States. Compiled by the leading historian of graphic design Steven Heller and renowned graphic designer Louise Fili, this invaluable collection, packed full of typographic ideas, will inspire anyone aiming to give more depth to their design.
Dana Tanamachi is a really cool typographer in great demand. Specialized in handlettering, typogrpahy for lifestyle, food and fashion brands, she really gives her work the certain love. Mostly working with chalk which medium is her hobbyhorse, she shows us her work with Time Magazine, Oprah Winfrey and a lot of very nice references. Being asked how she fells inthe her studio she said:”It’s nice to hide out in my studio, away from the hustle and bustle of the city. I enjoy listening to music while I work, but sometimes, silence is just golden.” We love her work and hope to see more in the future.
