If you’ve followed this blog for long, you probably know that I have a slight interest in typography. I’m fascinated by the aesthetic quality of letter-forms, the psychological effect they can have on those who are reading them, and the ways that they are created.

In this TEDx talk from UCLA, graphic designer Andrew Byrom touches on all of those, and more. He speaks to the heart of a common artistic challenge: how to reveal the form within.
