To do: learn more about typography
As an architectural designer I don’t deal heavily in text-based graphics like a graphic designer does, but typography has always fascinated me. And considering I can never find a satisfying san-serif font to use in my projects from the list of preinstalled ones in most design software, I’d like to be a little more informed about this art/science in general for when I go in search for new fonts.
I am posting this link - Learn the Basics: 25+Sites And Resources To Learn Typography - mainly to bookmark it for myself, but if anyone has any recommendations for me (web or book) please leave it in my ask box!
