As I have been reminded time and time again throughout the creation of this book, type is not simply just type. As with nearly all forms of art, typography can act as a bridge of connectivity. It can bring together cultures of different worlds, connect people to lost heritage, or even allow people to find themselves. For this reason, it is simply ridiculous to only award the world’s admiration, praise, or basic acknowledgment to type which comes from a slim few countries that have been deemed worthy of such. Typography is not just words on a sign or page that look pretty on a neat Swiss grid. It has the capability to be much more, but we cannot realize that potential if we do not allow ourselves to appreciate all of the type that is available.
About the Author: Victoria Kuzmicki
I am currently studying Art and Design with a concentration in Graphic Design at Nova Southeastern University. I discovered my talent for drawing in the 8th grade, and have since developed a lasting devotion for several art forms. After working as a yearbook editor in my Junior year of high school, I ventured into graphic design. I was raised in Miami, Florida to a Bahamian mother and Italian father. My racially mixed upbringing has greatly influenced my approaches to life and my work as an artist and designer. Currently, my design trajectory is packaging and brand design (but secretly, I just want to design tattoos).
