Typography is something we often overlook, but it plays an essential part in the design process. Almost everything we see is specifically designed with a font to fit the brand. Typography can change the entire look and feel of a design, which is why we should all learn the basic fundamentals of typography.
I wrote this book to give content creators a basic introduction to typography by compiling both everything I've learned from the university and from my own personal experience. While the book won’t make you an expert designer overnight, it will give you the basic fundamentals of typography.
