FFH Website News page -- Italics?

Postby GenoaJenn » Sat Jul 21, 2012 4:07 am

I used the link in an RSS feed today and got to the FFH.org website only to find it was filled with italic type... ??

It's very hard to read... Did you do it on purpose? :?:

Hi. Yes, the whole page was redesigned and the code cleaned up. It does now use @fontface with its own fonts, one of them an italic. Tests on our computers showed an acceptable readability of the italic font, but it is of course less optimized for screen reading then a standard web font is. Also it depends on your software/platforms font rendering capabilities how well readable the result really is. If it results too hard to read you can always use your browsers ability to increase the font size (Safari and Opera for example have a zoom in feature).

After almost 30 years as a page designer for newspapers, magazines, websites, DTP, books, newsletters, etc, using italics as a "body" font is a terrible idea. Italics should be reserved for EMPAHSIS not the main body type. Please believe me when I say, “I've been there and done that.”

I recommend you read a design guide concerning italics in particular... the other thing is to use “fancy” fonts on headers, break-out quotes, etc., and leave the body text in auto format so people's browsers can choose the font. That way, if they have aging eye sight, dyslexia (common among artists) or other disorders that affect reading capabilities, they have to choice to make the site more legible, readable and a more pleasant experience overall.

For me, as I get older, I am finding it very difficult to read decorative and italic fonts for more than a sentence, or two, embedded within a larger field of text.

PLEASE, please, change the body text back to auto, so I can overide your font choice and make it easier for me to read your announcements.

Thank you.
