Typography: Spaces Between Form and Meaning


The education of a graphic designer, like the life of a designer, is about learning to see things differently. Challenging ourselves to see differently helps us deliver the unexpected. Typography is an education within an education. It is looking at and manipulating the surface aspect of written language to gauge its effects on meaning. It requires time dedicated to intense observation until the forms and logic enters the designer’s mind.
