Abstract: We can consider typography as a method by which information reaches a group of recipients. Letters are inseparable of our everyday life. Historically, we all know the metamorphoses of written signs to look the way they do today. From naturalism to abstraction, from complex communication systems known to a handful of enlightened people, to increasingly logical systems of writing. Historically, we define typography as art and craft of designing letters. Letters that should be printed on physical media. Nowadays, the context in which typography is used is more complex. All arranged letters, regardless of medium (carrying a conventional meaning is not even mandatory), which reach the recipient has a typographic dimensio.
