In fact a great majority of my work here has been conveyed solely over the internet. In terms of graphic design, print’s my first love, but I distinctly remember some time in late 2009 that I heard something about webfonts, the canvas element, pseudo-selectors, transitions, and a number of other experimental and not-widely-supported web technologies, and thought, ‘I need to really dig down into this stuff.’ One ambitious autoinitiated web project later (it was something similar to Readability, before I knew it existed, indeed, perhaps before it did exist), and I was happily up to my nose in markup, CSS, JavaScript, and preprocessing, feeling good about the direction of the internet and electronic media in general. Since then I’ve tried to keep up with at least the aspects that touch web typography, but I’m not a current practicing web designer, or a specialist in web composition.

So you think you can tell Arial from Helvetica? Quiz
Articles: How to Spot Arial Many of the characters in Helvetica and Arial are very similar to each other, although none are quite identical. Other characters are quite a bit different, and they are the key to telling which is which. Here are some of the most obvious ones (Grotesque 215, Arial’s ancestor, has also been included for comparison): The “a” in Helvetica has a tail; Arial does not. Also, the bowl of the “a” flows into the stem like a backwards “s”; the bowl of Arial’s “a” simply intersects the stem with a slight curve.
