*~*Typography*~*

Typography is a visual form of communication. Alot more goes into typography than just grouping of letter that form a word. It has form and shape and personality. Typography has character, texture, and the power to express mood meaning and ideas. Designer’s have to pre-test their designs or publications in order to get the final logotype, Experts say it’s best not to be quick to settle for a design, but to make sure you meet the organizations needs. In businesss cards no font smaller than 8 needs to be used. Most business cards will have fonts from sizes 9 to 11. The organization needs to be anywhere from size 12 to 15. When creating a brochure the heading font needs to be larger by 20% and the body text in the brochure needs to be anywhere from size 9 to 14, just depending on how much content will go into the brochure.
