What is Typography?

My love for typography is what got me started designing wedding invitations in the first place. Where else would you get the task of getting a gazillion words and told to make it pretty? I love jobs that allow me to play with different styles and couples who aren’t afraid of using or not using space.

So what is typography? Strictly, it’s the art or process of setting and arranging type. It is the style or appearance of printed matter. It is where the word or words would be the design.
