Typography today is exciting. And unsettling. Both the way we design type, and the way we design with type has changed. It is linked, as ever to technology and to today’s vision of the information highway. Type is an integral part of information, giving ideas visibility, structure and spirit. It is necessary for students of typography to understand the history, tradition and aesthetics of type and letters. At the same time they need to take part in the creative exploration as new processes permit.

    As a design student at Ohio University, I was given the assignment to research, write, design and produce four pages on an individual typeface. Shown below is my investigation of the classic typeface City. This study has served both as a foundation for serious investigation of type and page design and continues to be a typographic reference.
