typography basics
  • Bowl - A closed rounded (but not a circle) stroke (e.g. letters a, e, d)

  • Counter - The inside of a bowl

  • Leg - The bottom straight stroke of a letter that touches the baseline (e.g. letters L, K)

  • Baseline - The invisible line on which characters sits. All the letters should sit evenly on this line except for bowl letters.

  • Meanline - The line that falls at the top of many lowercase letters (e.g. a, e)

  • Ascender - The part of the letter that extends above the meanline

  • X-Height - The distance between the baseline and the meanline

  • Cap Height - The distance from the baseline to the top of uppercase letters.
