Type can be emotive, expressive, illustrative and interpretive. The designers featured in Type Graphics: The Power of Type in Graphic Design have managed to transform expectations and create startling designs that challenge static notions of the role type plays in design. Work from a diverse pantheon of internationally known designers captures the fluidity, the sensitivity and the art of designing with type. These stylists and practitioners of typographic virtuosity provide a range of work which has individuality, attitude and graphic flair. Collectively they demonstrate the power of type in contemporary design.
