2014, the year... feminism went viral On January 3rd of this year, Elle magazine hosted a panel discussing whether or not it was time to "rebrand" feminism. Like so many of these events with their unnecessary champagne sponsors and hashtags blown up and printed on the walls, there were very few words of dissent. 2014 was the year it was then decided, that feminism be transported out of the dark ages and upgraded, transformed and re-interpreted into something somehow more palatable. To be fair to Elle there's definitely something in the assertion that some people are afraid to align themselves with certain concepts of feminism - in the age where your digital footprints hang off you like a shadow, people are less and less confident to demonstrate any kind of opinion that might indict them down the line. Still, you wonder how many of these sponsored panels spent bemoaning the connotations of a word could instead have been spent minus the bubbles actually talking to the people they're so desperate to act as a mouthpiece for.

Top 10 Fonts Web Designers Love When I was starting out with Web and graphic design, I was always wondering about the fonts that real designers use. So I conducted a research to find out the most popular fonts designers like to use, their best practices, and also out of personal curiosity, their typographical needs. It would be nice to know which font is good for which situation and today I am sharing with you the results of my research. Through a combination of data collected from Polldaddy, Forrst, Facebook and Twitter, I got feedback from 34 designers from 14 countries answering questions about their favorite fonts and explaining to me why they love them. By analysing all the input submitted I have uncovered some interesting information, which has been put together in an infographic by friends in Piktochart.
