A great short video on Typography
As they say “Type is everywhere. Every print publication, website, movie, advertisement and public message involves the creation or selection of a fitting typeface. Online, a rich and artistic typographical culture exists, where typefaces are created and graphic design seeps into every image.
In episode 2 of Off Book, typeface designers Jonathan Hoefler and Tobias Frere-Jones outline the importance of selecting the right font to convey a particular feeling. Graphic designer Paula Scher talks about building identity in messaging, while Eddie Opara uses texture to create a reaction. Infographic designers Julia Vakser and Deroy Peraza map complicated data sets into digestible imagery, mixing colour, graphics and type. http://www.pbs.org/arts “
