Sans serif

I just swapped the font on our website from Verdana to Helvetica. It looks nicer already. I don’t know why it was in Verdana to begin with.

Speaking of our website – if you’re from North Queensland and haven’t spammed your local candidates and the party leaders to tell them to fix the Flinders Street Mall – you totally should. Here. Now.


Amy says:

Technically verdana is clearer and easier to read on websites and should be the default screen font.

Saying that, our corporate font is Helvetica so I can’t criticise it..

Nathan says:

Verdana is fat and looks terrible in bold. Headings were ugly before and now they’re svelte.

Amy says:

Don’t worry, I tend to agree, just had a lot of usability studies jammed down my throat here.
