A Brief Introduction to Typography

A Brief Introduction to Typography

Typography is a key element of any graphic design. I would say that is the element. Can be designed using only good and properly typography. You do not need nothing else, the rest usually straw. However, outside the realm of graphic design, is a known issue and is not given the importance (hence the designers there, right?). Improper use of fonts, use fonts “prohibited” use default fonts, make people’s eyes bleed that gives minimal importance, and it does not take an expert to avoid these common mistakes. Any computer contains hundreds of pre-installed fonts to choose from and there are dozens of websites with thousands of free fonts, just some minimal knowledge and aesthetic taste.

This infographic intend to explain the basics of typography and disseminate “best” ones that always work without very complicated life. A short walk through this fascinating world.

Gmail: 9 years and counting

This April marks Gmail’s 9th birthday, and as year ten gets underway, it’s a good opportunity to look at how much has changed: the curse of the Bambino was broken, Martin Scorsese finally won an Oscar, and we stopped referencing Xena the Warrior Princess in our blogposts. And during that time, Gmail—and online communication as a whole—evolved too. So much of that evolution is a result of your feedback. In fact, Gmail was inspired by one user’s feedback that she was tired of struggling to find emails buried deep in her inbox. So we built a new email that leveraged the power of Google Search. You told us you were tired of spam, so we set to tackling that, and today your feedback makes it possible for Gmail to filter out well over 99% of incoming spam. You also said that you needed tools to deal with information overload, so we introduced Priority Inbox to help you manage your email (and we’re still exploring new ways to it even easier).
