Did you know that 80% of you (if you’re in the U.S.) will have a BBQ or picnic today, where you will help consume over 150 million hot dogs? Shocking. I mean, who eats hot dogs when they’re not at a sporting event?
Happy Independence Day!

Extensis recently revealed the list of top 10 web fonts used in 2013. According to data collected from the professional web font service WebINK, designers and developers used Myriad Pro most often for their projects, a position it also held in 2012.
New to this year’s list of top 10 used fonts are Fakt Pro and Museo Sans. These both continue the typography trend toward modern san serifs. Fakt Pro by Thomas Thiemich is a fresh “Helvetica alternative,” as are several others already on the list such as Theinhardt and Aktiv Grotesk. Museo Sans is a geometric sans serif by Jos Buivenga, that has a warm and somewhat retro feel, not unlike its Top-10 stablemate Proxima Nova.
