Perfect communication is person-to-person. You see me, hear me, smell me, touch me. Television is the second form of communication; you can see me and hear me. Radio is the next; you hear me, but you don’t see me. And then comes print. You can’t see or hear me, so you must be able to interpret the kind of person I am from what is on the printed page. That’s where typographic design comes in.
