The computer is only a tool. A phenomenal tool, to be sure, but the ability to use it, no matter how brilliantly, does not make up for a deficient knowledge of typography. In many cases, brilliant solutions involving a great deal of technical innovation are crippled by inferior typography. At the beginning of the nineties I wrote an article for a Hungarian magazine entitled 'Computer' in which I predicted that we would witness the appearance of a group of so-called graphic artists who would work in the field armed with nothing more than the knowledge of the ama zing possibilities that the computer had brought along, and the skills required to operate it. My prediction came true.
I am now shining a spotlight on those deficiencies because we seem to be forgetting, slowly but surely, that along with the usefulness of things, there is also their beauty to consider, that there is that troublesome thing called art, even if it is only applied art.
A least I hope so. It features a selection of work produced over a period of twenty years. I trust that some sort of interconnection will be discernible between the two "genres" that I mentioned. That is why, after many years of experience as a typographer, I decided to get together with a few colleagues and open a web design studio, hich, even in the medium of the web and its fantastic technical possibilities, will lay the primary emphasis of design on typographical considerations inorder to create websites that are "carved from a single block", i.e. which have a unique and clear-cut visual character that lends them an enhanced individuality.
