New to Typophile? Accounts are free, and easy to set up.
If anyone can help me or refer me to a good web designer who's familiar with font sites, I could really use the help...I am an independent type designer launching a new type foundry, but I don't have the tools to build and maintain a good site. And frankly I'd rather be designing new type! :)
I can provide content - fonts, graphics, text, whatever - but I need someone with the experience to build it. If you wanna hit me up on here, that's cool. Or e-mail me and I'll give you more details: email@example.com
Thanks for reading!
I am a traditional typographer having difficulty understanding HTML tools, some are easy, such as emphasis; though why "ital" wasn't used rather than "em" is a mystery; shouldn't "em" have been reserved for an em-space?
The above example is easy to set in typographic programs such as QuarkXPress or InDesign, and the coding made sense on Quadex and other type systems, back in the day. Note that there are hanging numerals in bold, the text is set 9/11, with alignment for breaking lines, and 2 pts additional space between paragraph returns.
The same goes for the superior shown, again, easy in Quark or InDesign, nearly impossible (at least to me) in HTML.
