Fonts Are Fueling the Culture Wars

Quote:Typography is undergoing a public renaissance. Typography usually strives to be invisible, but recently it’s become a mark of sophistication for readers to notice it and have an opinion.

Suddenly, people outside of the design profession seem to care about its many intricacies. Usually, this awareness focuses on execution. This year’s Oscars put visual hierarchy on the map. XKCD readers will never miss an opportunity to point out bad keming. And anyone on the internet can tell you, Comic Sans has become a joke.

Interesting.

Quit reading at the part about murderous psychopath Hillary Clinton, though.
She truly gives me the creeps.

So does the fact that any thinking, feeling human being with any sort of love
and human decency in their heart would actually admire and support her:





May all the criminals who orchestrated and executed the absolutely horrible
Libyan swindle get their just comeuppance.

But it is obvious as hell now, that Mr Khaddafi stood in the way of the Great
Agenda.

Politicians hide themselves away
They only started the war
Why should they go out to fight?
They leave that role to poor

Only by font snobs.

Regular people loved it and used it all the time.

I guess I'm a font snob.

I sure do seem to be snobby about more and more things. hmm.gif
