A detailed look into editorial design, providing meaningful insight into the use of type as a design component and ways in which type can be used to successfully support and augment the expressive possibilities of visual information. Type at Work presents useful guidelines on how to achieve this goal in sections that include the following: ”Conceptual and Visual Thinking,” in which typography is deliberately used to support the expression of a certain concept or idea: ”Xplicit Typography,” which features selected projects using type as image; ”Functional knowledge,” in which projects are chosen for their highly sophisticated level of clarity and legibility.
