Typography is what language looks like. #quote

Typography is the art of choosing typefaces and arranging type to make written language legible and beautiful.

Made up of some smaller skills including:

My favourite examples

Pentiment is a videogame featuring phenomenal typography as a way of communicating character social standing. The game created original Typefaces just for the game, by studying historical texts, which you can read about in great length in the Lettermatic case study.

Typewolf features many interesting typography examples on his website.

Other people's resources

Typography is improved greatly with Colour selection for UI.

A core skill for UI design, and in my opinion, a crucial but underrated skill of UI engineering.

Is somewhat related to, but different from Penmanship and calligraphy.
