Font choosing

A catching infographic from neatly summarising the basic fonts choices between Serif vs Sans Serif.  Choose Sans Serif for the web as computer screens have 100 dpi resolution (ipads are 300dpi); but choose Serif for books (at 1000 dpi), as at higher resolution serifs make for quicker reading.  This inspired me to change the main font on this blog to Lato. 


Lato is a sanserif type­face fam­ily designed in the Sum­mer 2010 by Warsaw-based designer Łukasz Dziedzic (“Lato” means “Sum­mer” in Pol­ish).



In Decem­ber 2010 the Lato fam­ily was pub­lished under the open-ource Open Font License by his foundry tyPoland, with sup­port from Google.

I might change it again at another date, but for now the blog reads cleaner, especially on mobile.

Cross fertilise. Read about the autistic mind here and ideas on the arts here. On investing try a thought on stock valuations.  Or Ray Dalio on populism.
