Granite Bay Graphic Design Building Blocks: Fonts and Typography

“Typography is the craft of endowing human language with a durable visual form.”


The Egyptians developed a sophisticated system of hieroglyphics around 3100 BC, making it one of the earliest forms of writing in the world. Hieroglyphics were a combination of logographic and alphabetic elements, with hundreds of symbols representing sounds, words, and concepts. These symbols were meticulously carved into stone monuments, painted on papyrus, and written on tombs, providing a means of communication for the ancient Egyptians. The complexity and diversity of hieroglyphics allowed for the recording of religious texts, historical events, administrative documents, and personal communications. This writing system played a crucial role in preserving the rich history, culture, and beliefs of ancient Egypt for future generations to decipher and explore.
