What I have learned.

One of the most important things I have learned is how far back Typography goes. I never looked at it as more than just another type of art. It actually is a way of life. I love the the quote from Ellen lupton. "Typography is what language looks like." It is such an awesome simple phrase that has so much meaning. The second would be the difference between legibility and readability. Not the fact that I learned them but a I learned the difference between the two. I believe those a very confused group of words. They are so similar and very hard to explain the differences unless you fully understand. I believe that I have learned them. The only thing I would say is that I do not agree with Typography being the most important tool in design. Although very important especially for displaying an image but I think like a band, everything must work together equally to create a masterpiece and obtain the definition of harmony.

  1. I agree and also I never knew how important it was until I was on my way home one day and couldn't read what the name of a local sandwich and ice cream shop was because it was in a horribly decorative type and also crammed together.
