It’s a wonderful world, hidden in plain sight. Here there are some resources for inspiration and study.
A premise: I have a fetish for Typography. I really do. I often find myself tweaking font faces when instead I have much more important and urgent things to take care of, or I spend a long time watching super technical videos and documentaries on the history of design and visual representation of writing. I wonder how would it be if I chose it as my main interest, alto at a professional level. Nevertheless, I love it, and by checking the insights below, you might be struck by its power and beautiful effectiveness, too.
