Principles of the New Web Typography

In his excellent essay, “The New Web Typography,” Robin Rendle defines three principles of web typography:

  1. We must prioritise the text over the font, or semantics over style.
  2. We ought to use and/or make tools that reveal the consequences of typographic decisions.
  3. We should acknowledge that web typography is only as strong as its weakest point.

Must-read for designers.
