Typography is an object of everyday life for everyone. It is omnipresent and yet usually not consciously perceived. The processes behind the design of typefaces or their applications, and the cultural and individual factors that contribute to design decisions, are usually not comprehensible to outsiders.
How do designers perceive typography? How does individual perception translate into design? Perspectives on Typography is an attempt to answer these questions and to show which thought and work processes lie behind the typographic work of various designers — a curation of the multifaceted richness of typographic design. Articles, essays, interviews, project presentations and visual interpretations of typography offer both designers and non-designers the opportunity to broaden their perspective and create a framework for reflection on their own perception of typography.
