After nearing a month at Derooted HQ, I, Jenn King Intern at Large, am emerging from my relatively inactive internet (or should I say INTERNet, har har) presence to fulfill my new role as Jenn King Intern at Large / Blogette Extraordinaire. Please, bear with me while I get whatever the computer equivalent of finding one’s sea legs is.
Art and design have always been a barometer of the times and current cultural climate. Typography in the Renaissance was a direct interpretation of ornate handwriting of the day. Renewed interest in Greco-Roman culture influenced the Humanist type faces that basically define modern typography to this day etc. etc..I could sit and regurgitate Robert Bringhurst’s “The Elements of Typographic Style” but Id rather not.
