Type Design is the visual conception and design of font families. The design of a legible text-based font family is one of the most challenging assignments in communication design. Digital type design is a technological process, blending elements of art, design, typography and applied science. Contemporary font families are an important visual component of a company’s corporate identity and corporate design.
The precise meaning of the term font is changing with the times. Modern type design technology can reproduce almost any character from one digital font.
