For today, we were instructed to watch quite an interesting video called typomania. First off, I apologize for the terrible pun I forced on you with the title. We were also instucted to come up with two University level questions regarding typomania.
My first question about the video would be this: How does a culture influence the typefaces of that culture? This question is very open ended. Especially considering the material presented in the video.
My second question would be this: When it comes to a typeface, how does the style differences translate into various thoughts about a culture? For example, why is Germany’s typefaces seem functional compared to a more artistic approach by the French?
Here is the video if you want to watch it:
That’s all for now. Look out for my panic attack: In the moment post!
