I’ll admit it, my education in design was a little rough having self taught most things. In doing so the importance of type in design was something I overlooked for quite a while but today I can say that type is probably one of the most important visual aspects in design.
We take it for granted.
Likewise I could say the same thing for icon design. In the graphic design world, an icon may be the most powerful and popular design that we create. Think about it, we use and see icons day in and day out, on the road, in our house, on the tv and on our computers.
