  • 1. TYPOGRAPHY BY Tr e von Smith
  • 2. What is Typography ?
    • It is the art and techniques of type design, modifying type glyphs, and arranging type. Type glyphs characters are created and modified using a variety of illustration techniques. The arrangement of type is the selection of typefaces, point size, line length, leading and letter spacing.
    • It is performed by typesetters, compositors, typographers, graphic artists, art directors, and clerical workers. Until the Digital Age, typography was a specialized occupation. Digitization opened up typography to new generations of visual designers and lay users.
  • 3. David Carson
    • He inspired many designers and created a new school of typography and photography based graphic design. His work does not follow the traditional graphic design standards. In fact, the rules of design are constantly and consistently broken in Carson's work. Carson’s designs represent the culmination of the movement against restrictiveness in modern design.
