Editor’s note

net magazine - - WELCOME -

We came across Matej Latin’s Bet­ter Web Ty­pog­ra­phy email course a few months ago and in­stantly fell in love with the idea that web de­sign­ers and de­vel­op­ers should be pay­ing more at­ten­tion to the art of web ty­pog­ra­phy. Matej ar­gues that web de­sign is 95 per cent ty­pog­ra­phy, and he bril­liantly ex­plains why in this month’s cover fea­ture.

Matej’s Ten Rules for Bet­ter Web Ty­pog­ra­phy is an es­sen­tial list for ev­ery web de­vel­oper con­cerned with mak­ing stand­out web­sites. Dive in to the fea­ture to dis­cover how to shape your para­graphs and pick the per­fect font, when less is some­times more, and why you should be us­ing lig­a­tures. Head to page 60 right now to find out how you can help build a bet­ter web.

This month’s sec­ond fea­ture looks at the ser­vice de­sign revo­lu­tion, and specif­i­cally how it can re­vamp your de­sign team for the bet­ter and help you eas­ily un­der­stand your cus­tomers’ needs. Even if you think your team is work­ing at an op­ti­mum level, Luis Ro­driguez’s guide is sure to raise some eye­brows.

If you’re seek­ing some in­spi­ra­tion this month, look no fur­ther than our ex­clu­sive in­ter­view with ac­ces­si­bil­ity ad­vo­cate Marcy Sut­ton, a pro­file on award-win­ning French de­sign agency Waaark, and an in-depth look at how John­son Banks made their eye-catch­ing new com­pany web­site, which is the envy of agen­cies all over the world.

En­joy the is­sue!
