A well-designed comma carries the essence of the typeface down to its delicious details.
Helvetica’s comma is a chunky square mounted to a jaunty curve, while Bodoni’s is a voluptuous, thin-stemmed orb. Designers and editors need to learn various typographic conventions in addition to mastering the grammatical rules of punctuation.
A pandemic error is the use of straight prime or hatch marks (often called dumb quotes) in place of apostrophes and quotation marks (also known as curly quotes, typographer’s quotes, or smart quotes).
Double and single quotation marks are represented with four distinct characters, each accessed with a different keystroke combination. Know thy keystrokes! It usually falls to the designer to purge the client’s manuscript of spurious punctuation.
Where am I, short film directed by David Dang.

Damon Hunter is a fine art photographer based in Melbourne, Australia. A perfectionist, Hunter has a need for every element within an image to be precise, to find order in chaos.
However, Damon is always the passive observer; never will he add or move anything within the frame, or ask anyone to pose. In his words, “If it’s not real, I don’t shoot it.”2 hearts
The widespread abuse of prisoners is a virtually foolproof indication that politicians are trying to impose a system–whether political, religious or economic–that is rejected by large numbers of the people they are ruling.
