Typography Reading

After last night's reading from the textbook, I've only grown more excited for what is to come with this class. There are so many different functions that typefaces have, all of which are manipulated by designers in order to reflect some sort of meaning/emotion onto the viewers.  There are many elements which make up the qualities of a typeface, such as its size, weight, color, speed, and so on. As a designer, it is our job to cohesively combine these elements, being conscience of every one and their interaction with each other.  With that being said, there are so many ways in which we can perceive the personality of typeface depending on how we adjust it's attributes.
