Android' is an experimental 3D shadow outline font developed by the American type designer Alex Kaczun. The unique lighting created by the beveled edge in combination with an outline font was particularly difficult to create. But the result was worth the effort. 'Android' makes for a powerful headline display that virtually pops off the page. There is a true three demensional quality to this innovative new typeface. Use the regular 'Android' when setting tight leading for smaller point sizes, and use 'Android Tall' which has taller capitals for larger headlines. By experimenting with 'Type Effects' in Illustrator and PhotoShop you can achieve some spectacular additional 3D effects.
