Our 4th assignment was a reading exercise on Typography. The reading material dealt mainly with with common type terminology & anatomy. The weight & style of text was an area I found particularly interesting. The use of italic, bold & CAPITAL letters can make a passage of test very easy / hard to read & can be used to illicit a particular response.
We were then given a quick test on the material in the following week’s class which…I didn’t do well in! Again time management was my downfall…in that I spent very little time reading the material! I’ve since made up for my error by thoroughly reading through the material & researching the topic in more detail in my own time.
Needless to say, typography is an area with a huge body of detail but one which is essential in understanding when to use certain types/ fonts & why! Lesson well learned!
