9 What is T y p o g r a p h y ? Typography is the art and technique of arranging type, typed design and modified typed glyphs.

13 Typographic Oxymorons For the first part of this unit, you will be working with various font styles which communicate different ideas or concepts along with using an oxymoron. This artwork must fit an 8.5 x11 inches or larger piece of paper. Choose an oxymoron from the list on the handout or create your own. Remember, an oxymoron is a contradictory figure of speech.
