Typography Games

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.

There are many, many (filter by Typography) books available to help hone your typography skills. Devalued typography can only lead to a so-so final project.
