Hello, world. I’m MacDara Conroy, and this is my blog.

Paul Hammond's notes on typography from @media 2006

Just to add my own note: Helvetica might be unfashionable, but it's underappreciated. Same goes for Georgia, which actually looks just fine in print too (if you like your fonts with a little padding round the middle). The real problem as I see it is that the wrong typefaces are being used in the wrong contexts: I never, for instance, saw Comic Sans in a real world, 'meatspace' setting until computers exploded in popularity in the late 1990s -- is it really as popular as it's made out to be, or are people just lazy, with no conscious understanding of the message and/or sub-text that such a font conveys? #link
