Typography is one of the oldest disciplines of website design – it’s roots can be traced back to the 2nd millennium BC, when Mesopotamian cities used stamps to make impressions on bricks. Any form of text can be labelled typography – it is simply the art of arranging type either evenly or unevenly to make it readable.
These days we use the term Typography as a beautiful arrangement of type, and it can be applied to both digital and hand-drawn/written type. Typography in website design has been forecast to trend in 2014, although there seems no great evidence of that just yet, but then we still have 10 months of this year to go, so it could still happen.
