Adelaide Australia-based graphic designer Sean Kane knows a thing or two about typography judging by his recent in the field. When it comes to fonts, there are a few challenges that graphic designers need to overcome.

First, typographic illustrations need to be just that: illustrative. They must be imaginative and interesting enough that one won't confuse it with Times New Roman or Courier. If typographic illustrations are confused with regular, everyday fonts than the graphic designer responsible is not doing his or her job.

The second stipulation of typography is somewhat at odds with the one just discussed: it needs to be legible. It's great if one has made an interesting, funky font but if it can't be read, it defeats its purpose.
