Web-based typography has exploded in capability in recent years. Thanks in large part to the ability to embed web fonts on a website.
I wouldn’t be doing my job if I let you leave this class without learning about the typeface “Helvetica.” Helvetica is a sans-serif typeface that is widely known in the design community as the gold standard. Watch the two videos below to hear two typographers speak about Helvetica (start video two at 3:54).
Use the CodePen sandbox below to test out the typographic properties above!
font-family: 'Pacifico', cursive;

For this project, create a new CodePen.io page and build a typographic poster, that features your favorite quote, like the one in the video below. For inspiration, search font posters.
