So the final part of our brief is that we have had to look at and discuss some typography artists/designers and the work they have done in regards to logo and branding designs.
To start this post i have absolutely no idea about typography and in my research i have learned a bit about this subject area.
Typography – the style and appearance of printed matter.
This short video explains a bit about what typography is and how it can be used
I have gone on to find a discussion on the topic of Typography by David Robinson. Its good to read about and is very interesting. You can read the Talk here
A couple of quotes stood out to me
“Nearly all of us have considered some aspects of typography before, if only by writing a letter, compiling a presentation or typing an email, that’s becausetypography is simply ‘the considered arrangement of letters and words and the visualisation of a spoken language’.”
“Anybody can stick text into a box, but it’s craftsmanship and attention to detail that bring the piece to life.”
This is the start of my research into typography and will be posting more as and when i learn about it.
