A Brief Introduction to Typography

Typography is a key element of any graphic design. I would say that is the element. Can be designed using only good and properly typography. You do not need nothing else, the rest usually straw. However, outside the realm of graphic design, is a known issue and is not given the importance (hence the designers there, right?). Improper use of fonts, use fonts “prohibited” use default fonts, make people’s eyes bleed that gives minimal importance, and it does not take an expert to avoid these common mistakes. Any computer contains hundreds of pre-installed fonts to choose from and there are dozens of websites with thousands of free fonts, just some minimal knowledge and aesthetic taste.
