New to Typophile? Accounts are free, and easy to set up.
I keep hearing the word 'tension' from great typographers, I have no idea what they mean by it.
Josef Muller-Brockmann says "a sensitive designer will always do his best to create the maximum tension in the proportion he chooses for his margins." (Grid systems in graphic design).
Can someone please explain what tension is, how to create it or get rid of it and why it is needed?
