I'm looking for some good material to help me strengthen my knowledge on using hierarchy with typography. Any suggestions?

Hi Felix, welcome to Typophile.

Are you a student? If so, where do you study?

I recommend the following books to help get you started.

Bringhurst, R. (2004). The Elements of Typographic Style. Point Roberts,WA: Hartley & Marks.

Müller-Brockmann, J. (1981). Grid systems in graphic design. Arthur Niggli Limited, Switzerland.

Tschichold, J. (1991). The form of the book. Essays on the morality of good design. (H. Hadler, Trans.). In R. Bringhurst (Eds.), Washington, United States: Hartley & Marks Publishers Inc. (Reprinted from Aufsätze über Fragen der Gestalt des Buches und der Typographie, by J. Tschichold, Ed., 1975, Basil, Switzerland: Birkhäuser Verlag).

Looks like you have some reading ahead of you!

(I would also recommend using your real name as your screen name. It has been my experience that you get more and better responses that way)

@chris When ever I read your answers for questions like these, I often think that I am reading a research paper's bibliography/references. You are a very patient man :)

That’s because you are reading references from journal articles. See also:

And are you a student?
