Explore Typography

Typography is the study and manipulation of letters.  It is more than simply choosing a font for a particular situation, although that is a large part of it.  Typography can involve working with letters as shapes: using curves, angles and negative spaces to create design elements from type.  Here are some examples of graphic artists who have expanded the idea of type beyond just being a  functional tool for conveying information, into using type as a means of design, self-expression and communication.
