The folks at Information Architects Japan have an interesting article about typography online. The title says it all: Web Design is 95% Typography. A little exaggerated in propotion but they make a good point: typography online is often neglected and misunderstood. I agree with this point. Finding a good information design specialized in online typography.
The resources at the end of the article are really good.
The problem I have with this article, though, is that it’s not well written. (Note that this comment is not based on grammar alone as I realize the authors may not be native English speakers–it’s more about the structure and argument presentation). This is something that annoys me more and more. Maybe I’m getting like a grumpy old man as I get older, but writing also seems to be a forgotten craft. There are some bad writers out there. But content still is kind, you know.
Maybe I’ll write an article with the title “Web Design is 95% Writing Well.”
