    Hey Sander,

    I know exactly what you mean. During my studies I took on a few projects too, but they were really nothing more than favours for people rather than big projects. Experience buys you a seat at the table to be considered for larger projects and I owe that entirely to my time at web agencies.

    I would wholeheartedly recommend spending some time in an agency environment to learn the ropes, see how projects work outside of what university teaches you, and how to manage client expectations.

    Thanks again for the kind comments!

    Thanks for the heads up - that should be looking better now. The paint is still fresh on the design, there may be other oddities.

    Thank you Dean, glad you enjoyed the article! I completely agree with you, work is enjoyable again because you choose what you want to work on: big, small, fun etc.

    Being able to be there for my kids is by far the biggest benefit. All the best for the future to you too :)

    Hey Lee,

    It's detailed in the article - the web already has good typographic defaults, this tiny repo provides a better default out-of-the-box to the raw defaults we work with (basically it's the bare minimum required to make a page responsive) so you can have a clean slate to start from. No enforced solutions, type or anything you should need to undo.

  • Posted to Ask DN: Typekit vs Fonts.com, Nov 26, 2014

    Fonts.com has a wider range of fonts, Typekit has a nicer UI for finding and selecting fonts. They both work very similarly.

    If you sign up for fonts.com you get a free Typecast account which is worth the entry fee on it's own (although I'm a bit biased) :)

    Dang, I made a mental note not to call it Tilde — I'm pointing the finger at autocorrect :)

    Thanks for the heads up!

    No problem Joao :)

    I'd personally prefer text, I'm not sure what the majority of users would make of it, but I find myself in contexts where it's not practical to watch a video or I might watch with audio muted if the visuals can communicate the message to me.

    Text on the other hand can be read in any context.
