Numbers Matter

When typographers talk about the characters that make up numbers, they call them figures. Numbers, after all, can be anything— two digits, three digits, a fraction, a mathy number with several decimal places shown. So 10 is a number, but 1 and 0, individually, are figures. And how those figures figure (zing) into a layout can really impact the overall success of the design.
