I suspect this trend may begin to reverse itself, though! The proliferation of retina screens and the concomitant trend of larger font sizes is making “golden” fonts more accessible. Take another look at Bodoni Moda—the proportionality is pleasant and beautiful. More of this!

The trend of the past 25 years has been an ever-increasing x-height ratio: • Up to 1995, the average x-height ratio was between 0.6 and 0.7 • From 1995 to the present, the average x-height ratio is closer to ~0.75 (and you almost never see anything below 0.68)
Show thread → Does the Golden Ratio appear in fonts?
pearsonified @pearsonified · Sep 09
If we only cared about beauty, the Golden Ratio would be the standard for x-heights. But the existence of “counters” in letterforms—such as the enclosed top of a lowercase “e”—makes the Golden Ratio seem inadequate on non-retina devices.

ASYMPTOTIC Larger x-height ratios—where lowercase letters are closer in height to uppercase letters—only promote easier reading up to a point. Because of this, there’s definitely a “sweet spot” for x-heights of digital fonts.
Show thread → Does the Golden Ratio appear in fonts?
pearsonified @pearsonified · Sep 09
Here’s why this is fascinating: 1. Modern fonts—anything produced since 1995—tend to have x-height ratios GREATER than the Golden Ratio because this promotes easier reading on digital devices. 2. Premodern fonts tend to have x-height ratios closer to the Golden Ratio.

The only way we win is by creating new, decentralized environments that force the Evil Axis to adapt to a new playing field. Fact is, we’ve been adapting to their playing field for the last 50 years. It’s time to flip the script. DECENTRALIZATION is the ONLY way this happens.

So what’s the conclusion here? World War 3 is already upon us (and has been for some time). It’s the CENTRALIZED borgs—an unholy mixture of governments, corporations, and financiers—versus everybody else. And the only chance everybody else has is to engage in DECENTRALIZATION.

Hallmarks of DECENTRALIZATION: • Repeatability • Reusability • Portability • Efficiency • Smallest possible bureaucracy Ironically, each of these qualities is either a negative or an impossibility in a CENTRALIZED system.

So this is the INCENTIVE STRUCTURE that leads us to CENTRALIZATION: If you’re backed by investment capital, you MUST expand. And if you must expand, centralization is the best way to do that while also securing profits as you grow.

Another way to think about this: You probably can’t think of a single example of a business that optimizes along its core value axis without expanding beyond it. Investment capital GUARANTEES a business must keep expanding until it’s sold.

Centralization has a MAGNETIC EFFECT here, too. In a never-ending search for higher profits, other corporations seek to emulate the success of their forbears. And thus the pattern of centralization becomes the de facto standard of investment-backed businesses.
