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;
- Interactive Guide to Blog Typography
Basic things that you have to know how to create good typography on the web
- 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.
- 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).
- The Sass Mixins
Use it wisely! It’s just a concept, customize it based on your need.
- Use `rem` for Global Sizing; Use `em` for Local Sizing
When you argue about using em or rem :).
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.
At its heart, web design should be about words. Words don’t come after the design is done. Words are the beginning, the core, the focus.
Start with words.

Big news on new year! Trello is acquired by Atlassian for $425M!
