Custom Logo Design Glossary


Egyptian type: originally, from 1815 on, bold face with heavy slabs or square serifs. Em space: a space as wide as the point size of the types. This measurement is relative; in 12-point type an em space is 12 points wide, but in 24-point type an em space is 24 points wide.

En space: a space half as wide as the type is high (half an em space.

Expanded (font): a font in which the set widths of the characters are wider than in the standard typeface. (Note: not the intercharacter space -- that is accomplished through letterspacing -- but the characters themselves).

Encapsulated PostScript (EPS): language file format can contain both vector and bitmap graphics and is supported by virtually all graphic, illustration, and page-layout programs. The EPS format is used to transfer PostScript language artwork between applications. EPS can be easily exported from most graphics and desktop publishing applications. Extended type: typefaces that are wide horizontally -- Hellenic, Latin Wide, Egyptian Expanded, Microgramma Extended, etc.
