New Writing: Typography Matters, on @thetorquemag

Over the past couple of months I've been sporadically contributing to the Torquemag.io community with posts on topics related to design. Yesterday they published an article I wrote on basic typography guidelines for web design. When talking to the editor at Torque, trying to come up with my next article topic, we both landed on the realization that a lot of people just aren't designers and don't think in the same creative ways that designers do. And nowhere is that more apparent than in the fonts that they choose.

Typography Matters is my shot at giving normal people basic guidelines for how to choose and use typography in their websites, emails, slide presentations... anywhere they need to use text. It's based on a wide range of ideas I've learned over the years and includes a ton of resources for more reading and learning.
