Typography is known as a boring subject to many of my friends. I also kept the same observation some years back. Now it’s one of my favorite. If anyone wants to grow as a great Graphic Designer, it’s one of the biggest area to show your talent.
When you are good at typography that means you are really good in creating logo, monogram, icon and above everything it presents that you have a very good sense of design compositions.
A Graphic Designer always has to work with many limitations. Spending time with typography is the best practice to learn how to work with limitations.
