  1. “Design Regression is a journalette (mini journal) publishing texts that are about design for reading and reading-related research. It aims for the hard-to-get blend of approachability with seriousness and relevance to practice.”

    Centre for Visibility Design

    “When a typeface is illegible the reader will always notice; when a typeface is legible no one gives it any thought. We strive to produce new knowledge that can provide the tools to create the most legible typography or pictogram.”
  3. We’re in an attention war. The battleground is mobile, 4.7 inches tall, 2.64 inches wide. Businesses scrap over it. Buy it. Sell it. Trade it. Attention is fuel. Light. Inattention is death by tumbleweed. But full attention is a reading experience, not an aesthetic one. The web is not an art gallery, it’s a newsstand chock full of brand stories dying to be read. Google decides the tales worth telling. It falls to web designers to design the perfect reading experience. We believe the Typography-First method is your secret weapon.

    15 Type Rules & Tips

    I've been studying a lot about type legibility and readability and found a helpful slideshow with lots of graphical examples describing a handful of important considerations when creating type and also page layout. Anyway, just thought I'd share it if anyone is interested: http://www.slideshare.net/shawncalvert/15-type-rules-intro-to-gd-wk-11-presentation

    Rhythm and Reading Comfort

    Ann Bessemans’ talk from ATypI 2015 in São Paulo These days rhythm within typefaces is treated very homogenously. The perfect example is the currently dominant early 21th century letter model where all the letters within a typeface get roughly the same width. But how does this development affect reading comfort? Currently, there is no closed definition of reading comfort and how to test it (quantitatively) in the best possible way. Tracy (1986) describes readability in terms of quality of visual comfort, as an important requirement in the comprehension of long stretches of text without experiencing physical complaints. There is strong evidence that visual comfort has to do with the rhythm of the typeface. Studies show that stripe patterns impede the reading process due to visual discomfort. Visual discomfort refers to the adverse effects of viewing certain kind of visual patterns, like text. This lecture will offer new insights into the way how to define reading comfort and why measuring visual comfort, independent from reading performance, seems to be innovative.

    Pseudosyntax

    I was schooled to set paragraphs tight and even, so I’m skeptical about the claims of Asymmetrica Labs that there are ‘decades of science have proven that uneven spaces add significant value to comprehension’. What do others think of their claims? http://www.asym.co/blog/2015/7/14/intro-asym-spacing What about that line length when viewing the site on a desktop. That’s not good for readability right...?
