Typeface Tuesday /// Facts About Fonts

Here's a fun font fact: people with dyslexia are better off reading text set in Helvetica rather than something like Comic Sans (well, we probably all are... but that's another story). Helvetica, along with Courier, Arial and Verdana, all have distinct letter spacing making it easier for dyslexic readers to differentiate between characters.

It's no secret that I've been slightly obsessed with mint green for a while now... but it's taken on a new intensity since I decided to paint a room or two in my new house some shade of mint. Are you a fan of it? Would you paint a room mint? Would you wear a mint shirt?
