Typography: Legibility & Readability

This post was originally posted in the class blog for a module I took in the past semester: http://blog.nus.edu.sg/3217w6/ as part of the module requirements. (edit:link has since been updated with posts from later semesters) It gives a very basic and brief introduction of what typography is about.

Although not really covered in the lecture, I believe that what comes to most of our minds at the first thought of typography is the creative use of typography in graphic design.
