I found an article called - Typography and its Immense Importance For Your Designing - which is all about the importance of typography in good design. I thought this would be interesting to share because I think that sometimes when designing type can be looked over or be seen as not as important as the rest of the design. This article is here to prove that typography is indeed important.
The key to making type work in a design is picking the correct typeface and color - these can either make or break your project. With the right typeface, you can convey a certain mood or emotion just by a few words. Add color, and you have created an even broader range of emotions that you can extract from your viewers. Type is something that can be immediately noticed and recognized as a logo and brand, and can be very helpful when trying to establish a business.
It is also very important to consider type choices in web design as well as graphic design. Most information on the web is type, and what typeface you use can be either very effective or very distracting to get the point across to the viewer. Readability, coherence, and visual appeal are all very important things to consider when picking a typeface for the web.
The thing I like about typography is that it seems so simple yet can be a difficult decision to make as far as typefaces, sizes and colors go. There are so many options from all hand-made type to the oldest and most revered typefaces of all time. Each one serves a purpose and has different meaning when used, which is what I really like about it.
