Typography Jargon Buster!


A counter is an unfilled (white or negative) space partially or entirely closed by other parts of the letters. For example, lowercase “b” and uppercase “U” both have counters. The stroke creating a counter shape is known as a “bowl.” There are two types of counter spaces: open and closed. An open counter means the unfilled space is partially closed, like “U.” A closed counter happens when the unfilled space is completely sealed, like “b.”
