Ellen Lupton – How To Do Things With Typography

Typography is what language looks like it. Type is at the heart of reading and writing, books and brands, websites and magazines. Every hang tag, every mailing label, every web banner, uses typography to convey emotions and information. Ellen Lupton discussed the basic architecture of typography, showing examples both beautiful and appalling of letterforms at work. Her talk was a handy refresher course for designers and a helpful introduction for people new to the indispensable art of arranging letters in time and space
