Web design is ?% typography.

web type is…

The below image is of Aurélien Foutoyet speaking at #ecvmdt2015 on Nov. 10th.

It’s difficult to see here, but behind Aurélien’s head says “stein”, so I believe he is quoting Oliver Reichenstein from this post.

There is a big difference between 18.6% and 95%…

Who is right, or closer?

[update] Thanks to @kupfers who points out that Bram’s statistic was saying 18.6% of CSS code deals with typography, and it was a playful reference to Oliver Reichenstein who was sitting there in the front row :)

František Štorm Interview
23 June, 2014

Štorm-Bestseller-Interview-1 Štorm-Bestseller-Interview-2

František Štorm‘s interview comes from this great book produced by students at the Studio of Type Design and Typography at the Academy of Art, Architecture and Design in Prague. You can see their nice site digitally documenting the project here.

This is simply an awesome interview… It’s so much better than most of the other rambling/BS/pretentious/pointless answers that are often given by type designers. For examples of those sorts of answers you can continue reading  farther into the book.
