Arial my new favorite font. Who knew?

August 31, 2011, by Doug Moore

It’s amazing how many fonts there are to choose from these days. Come a long way since the system fonts on the Mac SE with whopping 9 inch monitor and no world wide web.

But has it? Thanks to html, web browsers and various platforms we are back to just a handful fonts. Bottom line, if images are turned off or not displayed, so is your communication. Which leaves you with the compromise of using a system font. In walks Arial. The go-to font. The new san serif of choice.

Perhaps I’m being a little hard core, granted there are other fonts and it is getting better, I just find it ironic that we’ve come full circle. And what’s the measurement on an iPad screen? 9 inches? Oh my bad – 9.7 inches.
