    Typography is one of the most powerful aspect of visual that can be rendered around that is learnt in the studies of Graphic Design, it's one of the tool that is given advantages to the Designers to strengthen their artwork aside from having just visual aids.

    This is the thread where you may post anything regarding typography, in terms of information, learning source and all the trivias you want to share to the others.

    To make it more fun, you may also post funny/interesting pictures/gifs/videos of typography (or typo in general yes).

    Have fun.

    that's what i did @lieutenant... but i get to a blank page after i click "upload!" button. i was trying to upload a less then 2mb JPEG file, i thought it matched all the requirement. but... idk

    maybe instead of JPEG, it must be JPG file... idk.. just a conclusion of mine. the pictures gone now.. will take a picture of typo and try to upload it here in the future. coz i think i will see a lot of those around.

    System fonts are known for not being very aesthetically pleasing.

    A factor that largely contributes to this is that they have been optimised for screen legibility, which necessitates the exclusion of fine details. They all also overused, due to their default availability.

    Some fonts, such as Arial, generally cause people to cringe.

    Here are some subjectively tolerable system fonts:

    • Avenir (Mac)

    • Baskerville (Mac)

    • Bell MT

    • Cal­i­forn­ian FB

    • Cal­isto MT

    • Cen­tury School­book

    • Franklin Gothic

    • Gara­mond

    • Gill Sans

    • Gill Sans MT

    • Goudy Old Style

    • Hoe­fler Text

    • Op­tima

    This is the (ultimate) guide for font pairing, if you're looking for one that is (pretty sure you can find a lot of them on the internet, but alas), so I'll just drop this here
