We wrote an article a while back on how photography can make or break a project. The same can be said for typography. Typography can be, unfortunately, overlooked when it comes to design - especially with young designers. Having a quality sense of type use is just as important as having the right pictures, color scheme, etc. The phrase, “a chain is only as strong as its weakest link” is certainly true when it comes to design as well.
