I came across a fabulous idea for a Typeface Top Trumps. As someone who never gave fonts a second thought even though I always wanted to be a graphic designer from the year ‘dot’ I surprised myself about how much I got into type, kerning, weights etc. I am continually frustrated by designers who don’t care about type (you know the ones – happy to use an ‘inch mark’ instead of an apostrophe) and the poor typographic control when working on web stuff. So I had a smile on my face when I browsed through this concept, a couple of examples of which can be seen below.
