Work in Progress

After gathering all my information. I decided to do a booklet.

Photobucket

My plan is to divide the booklet into 2 parts.

Part 1 : Chronological
Information that might be included (under consideration)
- Timeline of influencial Type Designers
- Timeline of art historical period
- Timeline of when a type was 'born'

Part 2 : Thematical
Information that might be included (under consideration)
- Political (war, propaganda, etc)
- Technological (letter press, offset printing, computer/mac, digital, etc)
- People (influencial people, their work, etc)

Methods to create the booklet
- Purely Typographical (text as text, text as image)
- Include image/poster/example (deconstructing the poster, self explanatory?)

Right now I'm thinking of the content. What words to put in.
At the same time, I'm also thinking of the layout. How to place my words.

Just as what Robert Violette said "Content determine Design, Design determine Content but both always serves the aim"

My aim is so that designers, Graphic Designers in particular, would understand the importance of using the right type at the right time for the right purpose.
Not just using a font because of the reason "I like it that way" or "It looks nice that way"
