Guide to Good Typography

Creating a good typography is such as confusing for me, there is no exact formula that I can implement to every web that I made. Until I found some resources that will guide me to the right path;

  1. Interactive Guide to Blog Typography
    Basic things that you have to know how to create good typography on the web
  2. Modular Scale
    Don’t randomly pick font sizes, though, as the size progression might look inconsistent. Use a modular scale that calculates those sizes from a ratio.
  3. Secret Symphony: The Ultimate Guide to Readable Web Typography
    Enjoy the math! But don’t worry, at the end of the article you’ll be eased and get a rid the headache (if you hate the math :P).
  4. The Sass Mixins
    Use it wisely! It’s just a concept, customize it based on your need.
  5. Use `rem` for Global Sizing; Use `em` for Local Sizing
    When you argue about using em or rem :).

 

 

Words are Matter

Lately I found some interesting articles about how words are so important. They are:
Screenshots are so Last Year: How to Write a Case Study That Wins You Clients by Lauren Holliday,
Words by Justin Jackson, and
Most of the web really sucks if you have a slow connection by Dan Luu

My portfolio site itself still use images to demonstrate my skill. Turns out it’s not effective to show what I’ve done with those sites. I have to re-think again to build my portfolio site, so that I can show to the client what I’ve really done.

Another great article that I found is this one. Thank you to Robert who reviews and take part by part why that works.
