Mastering Typography
Mastering Typography

Typography is a rather obscure field, which is quite odd because typography is in everything you read. As such, it’s very important for a graphic designer to know everything there is to know about typography and preferably also the history and anatomy of typefaces. Bad typography is usually only consciously noticeable by type geeks (like me), however even someone who knows absolutely nothing about typography will find text with bad typography harder to read. In this article you will learn some basic principles and features to advance your typography.
Before we have a look at the features to improve your typography we have to select the right software. A few features which will be discussed in this article can be used pretty much regardless of the software but for most things you have to use genuine design software, so a program like Microsoft Word won’t suffice. You can achiev

Hello again - - -

Sat Jun 1, 2013, 11:00 PM
  • Listening to: Imperial Circus Dead Decadence and Touhou Metal
  • Reading: my own words
  • Watching: Adventure Time

- - - and I'll see you guys again in... what... six months maybe. That seems to be my current pattern of behavior. Well, I am still working, just very slowly and highly distracted. Of course, I'm always full of ideas that I want to do, but no time and/or energy. But I'm also very distracted with irrelevant drawings and sketchings (which I can definitely filter through and find gallery worthy stuff) that clutters up my imagination and won't stop bugging me until I actually manifest it on paper.
But good things have been happening. My husband is finally in an HR position for a company and has finally found his happiness and I have applied for graduation, thus I will finally have a bachelors in art history by December.
I've been looking at what I do here, and I think I've realized that I'll probably never be a "professional" artist, but it is the thing that makes me happiest in the end :)

And I will always keep working and learning on my own time; at my own pace.

I am the Expert Procrastinator
