Typography

Just read through the brief once again and decided to start my reseach into typography.

Obviously typography plays a major role in any websites due to the amount of text on screen so naturally if you make the text more intresting the page becomes more intresting. Typography also plays a major role in all other media’s from newspapers to advertising.

The internet arguably the biggest resource for research allowed me to find a web page called Thinking with Type this site has loads of details regarding typography such as Kerning (spacing), size, tracking (spacing across a line) and much more the author of the website also has written a book also called Thinking with Type. I will be checking to see if we have this book  in the library tomorrow and if so this will be my main research for the first brief.
