Web Typography & Getting the boss to go along with Web 2.0: Re-posted

October 29, 2009

Hi all-
Like a fool, I posted my links in comment responses to other’s posts, so in light of next weeks assignment to rank the posted links, I am putting them here for easy reference. I apologize for posting twice. I’ve really been enjoying reading about everyone’s links.


From 10/27 response to “Web 2.0 & Usability” by Varaxy:

“Managers / decision makers do not always understand the technologies’ potential and may be quick to jump on the [no need for new & misunderstood social media] bandwagon. If researched and planned, rather than added haphazardly, Web 2.0 and social media can be savvy investments. Check out this piece by Jeffrey Levy, the Director of Web Communications at the EPA, on how to get management on board with your social media project.

Also on 10/27/2009, I posted in response to “Importance of web fonts” by nikkibush

“It really can make a big difference to have easily readable fonts!
You might also find the following site on web typography of interest.”

The web typography website takes the best of Robert Bringhurst’s book The Elements of Typographic Style and focuses on those elements applicable to web design. Intense detailing and examples show how minute changes can make a major difference in the readability of a website.

    I found this article that relates closely to talking to managers about social media, and thought I’d post it here:
