Hi all,

I recently got very interested in studying Typography, and have created a blog entry with the tools/resources/books I could find.

Please bookmark for your reference (if interested) and also add any resources I miss in the comments. This will help create a good repository! :)

Font sizers

I've been looking at redesigning some asset level pages (articles, etc) lately. Currently on these articles we have a font size option (small, medium and large). Unfortunately it isn't something I can get any metrics on (nor done any testing) and am wondering if anyone has any experience with the usage of these. 

It seemed like a lot of sites were including these kinds of controls a few years ago, but I'm noticing a lot of new sites (or redesigned sites) left this functionality off. Have people found that this kind of functionality is little used?

Web Font Service preview

I thought I’d share something we’ve been working on for months now.

It is a web font-embedding system which is based on W3C standards and
provides a secure, reliable way to use fonts whose files are hosted on
a global network of servers. When you buy a font license you will be
able to create embeddable fonts. Simply enter the URL(s) where the
font will be used and the languages to be supported, and the system
instantly generates a short block of CSS code. Paste the code into
your website, and you are ready to start using the font.

Standard font size

I know that there was a discussion on this list a while back, but I'd
love to get a more recent update as to what people feel is the best
'standard' font size for an average audience. We are currently in
a bit of a debate with a client about their 'standard' font size.

Their guidelines dictate using 14px Arial / 13px Verdana for content,
which we feel is too large. We feel that a 12px Arial / 11px Verdana
standard is more reasonable to most users (in essence, using the 75%
base font adjustment from the browser standards and then using ems
from that point forward).

Arial vs Vernada?

For a better reading experience: *Arial or Verdana?*

- If Arial is smaller than Verdana, why do we use arial for the majority of
web apps?
- If there any studies or facts about that?

Comments?

How to improve graphic design skills?

If an IxD or usability expert wants to improve their graphic design skills (
e.g. they have a computer
science, engineering, or psychology background), what are some suggestions?

Are there any courses or workshops that are worthwhile?

Thanks,
Russ
