New to Typophile? Accounts are free, and easy to set up.
I'm now into my second year of a visual communications degree, and a particular question (although probably a very old, tired one) has been eating away at me since day one. It is:
Does anyone outside of a relatively small (tiny, even) group: typographers, type/design students, type nuts, and so on, notice or care about good, mediocre, or even bad type?
Personally, I know that two or three years ago I never noticed smart quotes, I preferred Arial to Helvetica, and if anyone suggested the idea of an aesthetically pleasing rag to me, I would've laughed at them. Thoughts?
