Typography

  • Your goal should be to convey information in the clearest way possible

  • Do not get carried away using too many different fonts or selecting fonts which are not appropriate for your piece.

  • For example, would you use Rosewood Std for a resume?

Note

  • Typefaces are developed over much time, taking into consideration even the smallest details.

  • It is generally considered a bad idea to manipulate the font in any way.

  • Adding a stroke, skewing, or adjusting the vertical and horizontal scale often leads to unprofessional results. It is best to avoid all of these in the beginning.


Typography

Note

  • Typography is an entire subset within graphic design focusing on typeface, line length, leading, etc. which will need further exploration after this course if you are interested in learning more.
