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.

Brand Fans - People have more brands as friends than ever on Facebook

We're increasingly friending brands on Facebook—the average consumer has 29 brand friends on social networking sites, up from just seven a year ago. But that doesn't necessarily mean we're spending time with them. Less than half of us (39 percent) interact with brands regularly or all the time, with the rest doing so occasionally (33 percent) or hardly/never (28 percent), according to the latest edition of The Curve Report from NBCUniversal Integrated Media. Clearly, brands could stand to do more to keep consumers interested; the chief reason given by people who don't engage with brands on social networks is that they only "like" brands to get a deal they're offering.
