I found out that many people are always misunderstanding the different between typeface & font.

What is typeface?
Typeface is a particular design of type. It describes the overall look of the character including numbers and symbols such as Helvetica, Arial and Futura etc.

What is the font?
Font is a collection of all the characters of a typeface in one size (pt.) and one style (bold, italic)
For example, Helvetica 12pt, Helvetica 20pt, and Helvetica Italic 12pt is also a font.

The Shape of Light - Craig Ward

He exploration into shaping letterforms using just light sources and cuts in surfaces. So I use his ideas about using light and experiment the angle of the light. I have observed the different angles which have allowed light to behave differently.

Personally, I like how he uses everyday life object to produce artwork by playing with light and shadows. The object that he chose also consistent with this words and what's he trying to communicate.

Shadows will change according to the light angle.
