Typography Quote of the Day: Enriching Yesterday’s Typography

“What is original and dynamic today, will be yesterday’s design tomorrow. New and innovative typography does not necessarily replace existing forms of typographic expression, but supplements them and thereby enriches the world of typography. Learn to appreciate all forms of typography, determining for yourself what is appropriate for specific projects.”

—James Craig, Designing with Type

Typography Quote of the Day: Spaces, Not Voids in Typesetting

Typography Quote of the Day: Spaces, Not Voids in Typesetting

“If there is an essential truism in typesetting, it is that a page contains no voids, only spaces between printed elements. The essence of typesetting is regulating the size of those spaces to control the balance and rhythm between black and white. This is the key to a graphically harmonious page—one with good type color—as well as to text that is pleasing and easy to read.”

—James Felici, The  Complete Manual of Typography

Typography Quote of the Day: Typography as Invisible Art

Typography Quote of the Day: Typography as Invisible Art

Design by: pentagram.com

Typography is known as an invisible art, because if a typographer has done a good job and produced a page that flows and is ‘easy on the eye’, he has done his job and the reader doesn’t notice. A page that is badly designed will be difficult and irritating to read. Whether you are reading in the office for work, or at home for pleasure, and no matter how interesting the actual content , if a book is uncomfortable on the eye then the enjoyment of reading is spoiled.”

—Jim Williams, Type Matters!

Beautiful type comes from attention to myriad tiny details. It’s built up a fraction of an em at a time, through hundreds of decisions whose geometry belies their gravity. It requires, as a colleague once wrote, a heart hardened against accusations of being too fussy.

How to troll Responsive Web Design zealots: Troll level over 9000

How to troll Responsive Web Design zealots: Troll level over 9000

Hey everyone. Look. Responsive web design is many things including these three:

  1. Here to stay
  2. Super cool
  3. Perfect for many sites

However, responsive web design will not do many things, too, including these three:

  1. Make coffee
  2. Print money
  3. Walk your dog

Impossible, unbelievable, but true!

Like I said in my previous very very short post, wherein I was referred to as a troll, I might actually write something to do my part to curb the responsive web design enthusiasm syndrome, but for now, I just want to troll post this cartoon. Enjoy your day, really!

After you are done thinking about trolling me back in the comments, do stop and look at this great collection of responsive web design infographics and learn something cool!
