Typography is a term that has something to do with graphic arts in modern communities. Sometimes it is mistaken with calligraphy.

However, the use of this technique dates back to at least 50 years ago in our country. In typography, legibility is very important because it is used in a field where informing is a prominent feature, while in calligraphy, beauty is more significant, in other words, letter design means to create an alphabet that can be typed in various ways.

However, typography has another aim, contrary to the responsibility that was burdened on the script in the traditional world to convey its meaning with the easiest way and most readable form, as well as its concepts to be instantly understood.

Recently, artists have chosen innovation and wonder accompanied by beauty as the most important aspects of visualization, along with three actions, namely deformation, exaggeration, and stylization, so that its beauty, power, and propagandistic spirit would be promoted.
