Engelová, Kateřina ; Khabirova, Maja (advisor) ; Phung, Hyu Nghia (referee)
The focus of this bachelor thesis is lettering as a very specific part of graphic design, which has been experiencing certain boom in the last couple of years thanks to its authenticity and generally thanks to the trend of returning to the values of hand made products as a contrast to mass production. First part of the thesis is focused on defining and clarifying some expressions related to lettering, such as hand-lettering, typography, calligraphy and modern calligraphy. It also describes different methods as well as the tools and media which can be used in lettering. At the same time, it approaches some of the basic rules and work processes, of which the process of transferring traditional hand-lettering into a digital form is mentioned in more detail. The practical part deals with a few primary areas in which lettering can be used, particularly selling designs through print-on-demand websites, databanks, intermediaries, custom work and finally, a self-owned online shop. Presenting practical examples, it tries to show advantages and disadvantages of these different areas. The main benefit of this thesis is in a united view on lettering as a stand-alone field and profession in which many designers have made their living.

First part of the thesis concentrates on theoretical foundations of Benveniste's thought in the school of Paris (A. Meillet and M. Bréal), Prague (R. Jakobson and V. Skalička) and Copenhagen (texts around 1939). I point out the concept of language system in diachrony in A. Meillet's thinking and in Prague school and present a hypothesis about the role of Émile Bneveniste in their contact during the International congresses of linguists. This results into a description of the perspective of meaning as it was presented in Benveniste's 1962 lecture "Levels of linguistic analysis". Second part deals with Benveniste's concept linguistics of discours. First chapter explains the main concepts of Benveniste's theory of language: semiotics and semantics or the semiotical and the semantical (le/la sémiotique, sémantique), enunciation (énonciation), appropriation (appropriation) and the theory...

Typography is one of the most important elements of web design and marketing. Good typography makes web design more appealing, which is important for readers in evaluating titles and the quality of text. The aim of this thesis is to provide a characterization of good and bad typography. I will use this characterization to identify modern typographical trends in a digital background. In the theoretical part, I will describe the basic features of typography. In the practical part, I will distinguish appealing typography and visual smog, and find specific examples demonstrating typographical trends in web design.
