Typography can defined as manipulating the visual form of language to enhance the meaning behind the type. Typography is essential to anyone who wishes to become a graphic designer or work in design. Typography has been around for about 500 years; and it has changed our lives and how we design with its rules, conventions, and obscure terminology. However, it still has the same amount of freedom as any other art form.

Typography is the key way to use typefaces as a means of communication. Typography has its root deep into human civilization, as it first started as handwritten letterforms. Typography cannot be limited to just handwritten typeface though. It covers everything form handwritten letters to digitally created fonts for webpages.
