Designing Irrationally: Combining the Fibonacci Sequence & Typography
by Nick Meccia
In an opinionated demonstration, Nick Meccia explains the use of modular scales in typography, the basic principles of the Fibonacci sequence, and where the two intersect. Learn some math stuff (gross), or see how you can use my math knowledge to lay a more dynamic foundation to your web typography by examining the details of type sizes in a non-standard way. Designers will benefit from additional ways of thinking about their craft, while developers can learn some basic typography rules to apply to their projects (and perhaps actually enjoy the math part).
