Today I realized I must ammend what I commented on your previous post. Designer-related sites might be intended for everyone considering design to be everywhere in our daily life. But what attracts me in particular is that, as writer, or sort of, or working on it to be, or sort of... anyways, as a sort-of-writer, para-text is very important. Sure, I might write everything in an arial-fonted notepad, but when it comes to publication, and extending text to others (which is the actual communicational part of writing), para-text in general and font in particular is fundamental. So there, now I have an actual reason to reading this other than just liking it :PAs you said to an earlier commenter, I might not be a big font fanboy now, but just you wait...Ah, y aguanten Los Campesinos! che...
@facoI'm so glad that you have realized about that; design IS for everybody and IS everywhere around us. Sometimes I get so frustrated when people said that something has more "design" than the other. (like when some journalists like to used the word as an adjective instead as a noun) (maybe it is because they confuse design with decoration.)Typography is a vehicle for the spoken word, and when it is carefully used improves the experience of the reader, just like when you drive a nice car, you don't even get notice that is there because it's fulfilling it's purpose. With you comment I feel at least I have reach to one [non-designer] person out there. And I would like to say thank you for that . :)
I don't know what tends to make people "scared" of design or drives them away. In my case is that I have some graphic or visual related difficulties, such as being colour blind, having a bad sense of harmony, shape and size and being a poor drawer. As I said, it applies only to my case, but I'm guessing an approach through typography instead of raw graphic design might help...
@faco Well, for some people is a learning process, and maybe they get scared because they think that curve is too uphill.But like in everything else in life there are a few things that comes naturally when you design but there's a lot that can be taught. It all depends how much do you want to get involved with.
