I’m putting letters on a typographic grid complemented by a chart to show and name typographic concepts. The list of terms shouldn’t be exhaustive, but should contain the most important ones, e.g.:
- the different lines (baseline, midline etc.)
- open and closed counters
- ascenders and descenders
- different heights and widths
I don’t have enough space for a full-fledged »Hamburgefonstiv«: two letters is all I get.
Which combination (majuscules or minuscules) can I use that embodies the most typographic concepts?
