Quotes and Daily Typography

Typography is the art and technique of arranging type to make written language legible, readable, and appealing when displayed. The arrangement of type involves selecting typefaces, point sizes, line lengths, line-spacing (leading), and letter-spacing (tracking), and adjusting the space between pairs of letters (kerning). The term typography is also applied to the style, arrangement, and appearance of the letters, numbers, symbols created by the process and quote.

Quotation is the repetition of someone else’s statement or thoughts. Quotation marks are punctuation marks used in text to indicate a quotation. Both of these words are sometimes abbreviated as “quote(s)”.
Type design in Typography is a closely related craft, sometimes considered part of logo, sign, symbol etc; most typographers do not design typefaces, and some type designers do not consider themselves typographers. Typography also may be used as a decorative device, unrelated to communication of information.
Artist Ian Simmons was busy this past year. In his own version of the 365 project, he drew one movie quote every single day. This impressive undertaking combined hand-lettered typography, calligraphy, and illustration as he brought the words to life on the page. These chosen quotes represent a number of artistic styles and compositional approaches. Many of the drawings are text-heavy and focus on memorable (as well as nostalgic) monologues while others are concise—they convey incredible emotion with just one word.
