The Digital Divide: Where We Are | Edutopia - 0 views

  •  
    While old, I like this resource for two reasons. It gives a snapshot of a problem that we are able to use and relate to today. We are able to see the sort of things they were thinking and how we have evolved or regressed. I also like how it is not just talking about the digital divide, but actually going in to "Where We Are" (or were in 2002). (12/10 Week 14)

17 Examples of Beautiful Typography in Web Design | Inspiration - 0 views

  •  
    This website shows off some of the best examples of how typography can be used in web design. My favorite is the Evenglide Showroom image. I love the clean look of the type and the way it fits in perfectly with the image. The text does not take away anything from the image which is a difficult thing to accomplish. I have seen typography detract from images in the past, but this is a wonderful example of it adding to an image.
