I'm so glad you said that. Proxima Nova is a piece of trash. Look at that stupid lowercase 'a' especially. It looks like it had too many strawberitas in the mission district and woke up hungover.
Also maybe this is petty but the name itself is so corny to me, I'm not trying to use a typeface that sounds like a a star sector from a badly written piece of Star Trek fan-fiction.
Actually, here's the thing:
From a traditionally technical standpoint, if your typeface italics is just a slanted version of your regular weight, it's not italics but a "slant" or "oblique" weight,
and it's considered italics when the characters are different like in Source Sans.
I mean, that definition isn't adhered to rigidly these days, we often just refer to all slanted weights as italics.

I find the default icon to be incredibly ugly
I find this icon incredibly corny
I'll take ugly over corny any day.
Jesus, grow up. You and all those who gave you points. It's disgustingly ignorant.
Being proud to be straight and being proud to be gay are clearly different. Society has shamed homosexuality for literally thousands of years. You can be evicted in some states by your landlord for being gay, you can lose your job. You will be harassed in one form or another in your life, if not on a daily basis. You can be killed in many places. A statement of pride in a culture of oppression is a completely different thing than proclaiming your identity which fits in the norm.
You've benefitted in life by being born straight you will not know the gay experience. A lot of paper care and they should.

If you had to stick to an Adobe program, Compared to photoshop InDesign is surprisingly well suited for doing web work if you activate the interactive options and change the measurements from inches to pixels. The workflow can be very similar to sketch. Multiple pages, for one thing.
Thanks! Don't mean to be pedantic just wanted inclusivity :)
