Another SxSW type pane hits the airwaves, which is great—the conference had a total of two (two!) panels on typography, both scheduled at the same time.

This one, featuring Stephen Coles of Typographica and Fonts in Use, Frank Chimero, Tiffany Wardle, and Jason Santa Maria, is called “The Cure for the Common Font,” and was a really well-received panel giving web designers a solid Type 101. There are slides from each of four presentations, and audio too. This is great if you’re looking for tips from designers you admire. Big thanks to the designers for making this available; I was in the other type panel.
