Welcome to Typography!


Typography Class Starts Today!

In typography we learn to use our letters as art and use Type to deliver the message of our design without having to read the content.

Our first class will include a brief introduction to Typography & fire up the computers and work in In-Design (page layout program.)

Typography is the design and use of typefaces as a means of communication. It is considered to have begun with Gutenberg and the development of moveable type. But typography has its roots in handwritten letterforms. Typography encompasses everything from calligraphy through digital type and type on Web pages. It also includes type designers who create new letterforms as well as designers and calligraphers who use the letters as part of their designs.

Typography uses typefaces and the whitespace around and through them to create a whole design.
