    Episode Quotables 

    “To take a step back, the world of typefaces and fonts use to be pretty esoteric that only professional designers, or type setters or newspaper guys really trafficked in that world, but now like anybody can download an almost unlimited amount of typefaces and fonts. Just open up word and you have at least a hundred different options.” 
    “When it comes to typography, might actually be one of my biggest pet peeves, that as soon as I see it, I cringe. Really a widow and orphan are the little piece of text that's left on the last night line of a paragraph or even worse in a multi-page document it might bump over and it looks really weird and creates harsh stops in your reading.”
