The majority of the web (and our lives) is type-based. That was the case in 2006, is still the case 10 years later, and will continue to be true until the day we’re all communicating via holographic emojis (2020?).

Here’s a list of 5 easy ways to improve the typographic quality and effectiveness of any website, email, or digital product design.
