In the age of having the power of a search engine and endless results at the power of your fingertips, we are processing more and more information than was ever possible before.

It can be iconic and remain memorable in some instances as well. It's used everywhere. You see it on street signs, in print, your digital screens. And once you understand the basics of typography you start to notice where and how text is placed. Such as what kind of spacing is being used and what typefaces are shown. You'll notice how readable something is or where your eyes are drawn, because you'll be thinking like a designer!
