Not Enough People Love Typography

Typography screenshot ILoveTypography.com: This site makes me fall in love with typography with every visit. In my daily toil using Microsoft Turd Word, Excel or just working in code-view all day, I forget about the power of typographic design. In my college days, I remember not being very fond (understatement of the year) of having to trace serif and non-serif faces by hand. How delightful, though, to know that all that work was worthwhile; I’m often unaware of the satisfaction I get from experiencing good typography. I take for granted the slickly designed world that surrounds me: Wired Magazine (print edition) and it’s creative use of type, “5” gum packaging and it’s slick packaging, any Apple product that comes so beautifully ‘wrapped’ in provocatively designed packaging and accompanied by slick product information. Type is beautiful.
