The Web 2.0 Big Font Controversy

Max Kiesler on the trend in web design to use large, high-contrast fonts:

“Do you ever wonder why many of the new websites you go to have giant high-contrast fonts? Extraterrestrials, a clan of very elderly web designers, or maybe it’s just a bunch of punk kids that are trying to be trendy? While in some cases any of these may be true, I would argue the real culprits are designers who base their typographic decisions on research (hopefully). “
