Death By Typography by ~GCORE on Deviantart… playing typography nerd.

It took me a while to figure out that what was bugging me about a particular design’s stylesheet was the mix and match headings in two different fonts.

    Looking through the things I have produced, it seems I am serif-averse. I wonder what Freud would make of that.

    This post is further evidence that you are a superior webmistress, Tigtog.

  4. Alison, that’s a good ‘un.
    Ariane, I’ve come into typography a bit sideways as I’ve been learning more about best accessibility practises and enhancing visual contrasts. It’s fascinating stuff.
