Design | Learning Task 10 | Typeface Panel

Typeface: Vast Shadow. Designer: Sorkin Type Co. History and character: Vast is a Victorian slab serif advertising type. Vast has a feeling of sturdy solidity combined with just a little bit of refinement. Because Vast Shadow has a thin shadow that won’t display well at small sizes we recommend that you use it from 32px and larger…being created in 2013, Vast shadow has very little history.
