ALA In HOW Magazine
In February’s issue of HOW Magazine there is a special section devoted to Typography. In it, as part of an article entitled “Viva Verdana”, they chose to highlight the recent redesign of A List Apart, which makes heavy use of Verdana and Georgia. Among some dissection of specific styles from our CSS, we scored a screenshot and a kind blurb:
A List Apart, an invaluable resource for web designers, uses CSS to create pages that are visually enjoyable to read. A style sheet renders the attractive paragraph spacing.
Ever since I started learning about design I’ve been following magazines like HOW, Communication Arts, and Print. I don’t do much print work these days, so the chances of my work appearing in one of these magazines isn’t that great. This sort of recognition for CSS based sites from one of the other camps of commercial design helps bridge the gap between us and lets traditional designers realize that the web ain’t all that bad to design for after all. It’s a great way to end the year and put a smile on all our faces.
Special thanks to Dan Mall for the tip on the article.
