The 19th century witnessed an astonishing succession of new technologies, imaginative forms, and new functions for graphic design. It was an inventive and prolific period for new typeface designs, ranging from fanciful and outrageous novelty styles to entirely new categories of type such as Egyptians and sans serif. This is a topic worthy of study because the way in which communicate with the world says a lot about the people doing the communicating.

The amount and variety of information available on the internet have made reading electronic text not only an option, but in some areas, a necessity. Electronic writing has changed the modern perception of who is a writer is by offering a wider range of places for authors to publish their work and opinions. Computers and the internet have become too mainstream to ignore.
The major problem for large manufacturing companies is storage at their facilities of raw materials and finished products. Another thing global companies need to take into consideration is costs between countries and currencies as exchange rates can change dramatically, either reducing or increasing costs. While the main benefit of using the internet for value systems and supply chain management globally is communications, it also provides a number of new avenues for business owners to advertise and sell their product such as online stores (Amazon) and auctions (Ebay).
