My Way To Typography by Wolfgang Weingart in 2000.

01/29/2015

SUMMARY

Weingart takes the discussion about typography to another level. Instead of agreeing to Emil Ruder’s perception that typography ought to adhere its duties, he explored the basics of typography and with few innovations of his own. In fact, he devoted his life teachings typography at the Basel school of Design. Towards the end, he feels surprised about the Swiss reduction and believes that the field of typography is ever changing; however, the traditional ways must remain intact to keep the basic knowledge of the field alive. Additionally, it was pleasant to see how Weingart made an active participation in the exhibition, where he could prove that innovations are subjected to the complex structural rules of the typography as well.

OPINION

I believe that Weingart has a successful journey in the field of graphic design and typography.

Although he devoted his life teaching typography to many generations and many known designers studied under him, he never stopped accomplishing his goals and dreams. I enjoyed reading this article of his and I discovered that new ways of accepting the traditional rules are still possible today.

Also, modernism has brought some good aspects forward and the charm of traditional basics remains good forever.

QUOTE

“My vision, fundamentally compatible with our school’s philosophy, was to breath new life into the teaching of typography by reexamining the assumed principles of its current practice.” (p. 77). He never stopped teaching typography and he always believed that this is the way to continue practic-ing and accomplishing his passion.

He also says, “When I came to the Basel School of Design the coarse Berthold Akzidenz-Grotesk, so rarely used, was fast asleep in the type drawer under a blanket of dust. I woke it up.” (p.

80). He simply means to make his old typewriter alive, which was covered in dust. It means to show the world that traditions are never dead.

TERMS

Futile: incapable of producing any useful result; pointless.

Drudgery: hard, menial, or dull work.

QUESTION

Was it difficult to adopt new initiatives of Weingart?

Why Emil Ruder assumed that being intact to some rules is the foundational duty of typography?
