Typography in Graphic Design covers the role of typefaces as cultural artifacts and how the influences and concerns of the day are reflected in type vernaculars. Very fine detail on font characteristics will also be explored (stroke widths, x-heights, serif qualities, etc.) and how these affect usage and emotional impact.
