Typography for the rest of us
Real world fonts
Choosing a type face can be fun, but also overwhelming.
You want to convey the message without obscuring the thoughts in an avalanche of weird shapes.
Cameron Moll has a web site/Blog called Authentic Boredom; his "platitudinous web home."
Recently he explored:
The non-typographer's guide to practical typeface selection
"I honestly believe typeface selection is one of the most transparent ways of detecting good - and bad - design. You can tell plenty about a designer merely by the typefaces he/she chooses. So you'd be wise to start with trusted faces, and you'd be even wiser to know something about the history of each typeface."
Who was that font I saw you with last night?
