April 2012 represents the 10th anniversary of Rands in Repose. I don’t normally celebrate these occasions, but serendipity has given me something to talk about.
As you might have noticed, I’ve recently made a few design changes to the site. I’m honored to participate in Hoefler & Frere-Jones private beta for their forthcoming web fonts offering.
Frequent readers will appreciate and understand the use of my beloved Sentinel for headlines as well as the revised header, but I believe the bigger impact is where I hope you spend most of your time - the body typeface. H&FJ’s screen version of Ideal Sans, for me, is a joy to read especially on the iPad’s Retina display. I can’t get enough of the whimsy of the numbers (1234567890) or the calm clarity of the small caps.
If you see anything wrong, please don’t hesitate to drop me a line.
10 years. 451 entries with 6500+ comments. I’d like to thank the readers of this now typographically-enhanced corner of the Internet. The only reason I’m here is because you keep coming back. Thank you.
