Response to reading

There are several things that interested me from the textbook. For instance, I found typographic hierarchy to be quite interesting. Prior to reading the textbook, I didn’t even realize that typography uses hierarchy to organize information. Words, letters, and paragraphs can all be emphasized according to the hierarchy set by the designer based on his/her purpose. Another interesting note from the reading was the purpose and use of kerning. Prior to reading the text and attending this class, I didn’t know what kerning was and why it existed. However, as I learned more about kerning, I realized its importance in topography and graphic design.
