Typographic observations Good Friday 2016 (95% of what we serve is pointless)
Your vision isn’t 20/20 anymore, just like 65% of the population, it’s worse than that. Like 4.25% of people on the planet you are color blind. You are now 1 in 10. You are dyslexic. Your phone is 3 years old. You can’t afford a new one. Your data plan caps out at 3g and 1 gigabyte a month. The internet connection where you spend most of your time is not what you’d like it to be. — Adam Morse, The Veil of Ignorance
It’s always good – and perhaps increasingly rare – to discover writers on the web who make you think yes, that is so right; everyone else is missing the point. So, introducing: Adam Morse.
I think we appreciate a lot of what we serve is decorative, motivated by a fear of appearing different and/or unable to implement x and y, which makes content less accessible. Expressing that thought directly and actually doing something about it is a different matter. This is what made iA so vital a decade ago.
iOS system font bold missing
For some reason, iOS won’t render headings in bold on my site. I’m using the system font (San Francisco) set to
font-weight: 700. It’s fine in OS X.
I’ve tried setting explicit numerical font weights and combinations of
-apple-system, but nothing works. If you’ve got any ideas, tweet me.
