A Dash of Inspiration: Type It Right

I don’t know about you, but I for one, am no expert when it comes to grammar and proper punctuation. I certainly get by and I do the best I can, but all the rules and exceptions to the rules seem to never find solid ground and take root with me. In fact I only know two people over the years, who I would call ‘Grammar Geniuses’, so I’m guessing these helpful articles I found, will be worth a read to some of you as well.  Either to expand your knowledge base, or simply offer a refresher course when needed. Of course I’ve included links to free fonts too! Enjoy!

Punctuation – Using Marks and Symbols Properly

Punctuation – Using Marks and Symbols Properly Without the benefit of correct punctuation, text may be subject to misinterpretation in dramatic, and even embarrassing, ways.

Hyphens and Dashes – These misunderstood and misused typography elements.

Hyphens, en and em dashes come in many styles and lengths. Note that while the em dashes on the left are in proportion to the ‘n’s and ‘m’s, those on the right are much longer than even their respective cap ‘M’s.

Understanding Type Classifications

A classification system can be helpful in identifying, choosing and combining typefaces.

I love to have a few good looking, classy fonts which specialize in upper case. These are great for business categories and matching up with a nice script font for more elegant designs.
