Digital Arts: Web fonts: what designers need to know in 2015

Another fab and in-depth article from Craig Grannell on Digital Arts, this time on Web fonts: what designers need to know in 2015.

Notes from Ampersand conference — Actual Notes

For those who wanted my notes in an undigested, scatterbrained form, here’s images from my notebook. (My digest is available too.) I’m a mind-mapping fiend, so I try to link with arrows where I can. Where new points were begun I just moved to another space on the page, so forgive the random appearance! There’s… Read more
