“Typography is to literature as musical performance is to composition: an essential act of interpretation, full of opportunities for insight or obtuseness.”
Robert Bringhurst – The Elements of Typographic Style
This seminar is aimed at giving a broad introduction to the subject of typography from a contextual and theoretical perspective. We will examine some definitions of the term, and through visual analysis, explore a range of ways in which designers have communicated specific messages using typography.
