In this penultimate post in this year’s series of Advent reflections, I wanted to move away from movies and illustrations and geekiness to something potentially more high brow, or at least different.
Typography has been a long held interest of mine, the choices people make about fonts, type, colour and layout of text are intriguing to me, and so subjective. However, once those choices have been made, perhaps the resulting reactions of people engaging with the work are more objective?
There are some brilliant pieces of graffiti and posters and advertising that take typography to its limits. The ones I’m attracted to are often just one or two words that cleverly combine text and meaning.
Is there one word that sums up your hopes for this Christmas?
I’d love to hear what it is in the comments…
