Incredible Black and White Typography

I love the use of different colors in design. Designs that use vibrant colors really attract my attention. I've definitely done my part in showcasing colorful designs.

Today, we will be focusing on black and white. In the world of design, black and white definitely have their place.

Until display manufacturers produce affordable 200 or 300 PPI monitors, we'll have to rely on software advances to fix these problems.

The Typographic Ails of Anti-Aliasing

Enter anti-aliasing: the next best thing to a world of higher-resolution monitors. The concept of anti-aliasing is fairly simple: add semi-transparent pixels along the edges of letterforms to smooth the appearance of the "stair-step" effect.
