Times New Roman is kinda becoming a thing.
Times New Roman is a beautiful font. I think it became an "anti-font" overtime in the public eye because of it's over/misusage.
It's because that's the only font school papers have ever been written in. 12pt Times New Roman
I think the problem is more the awful use of typography
I like this trend. Less webfonts mean faster websites, and for a universal font it's not bad to look at.
I'm guessing Mr. Frank changed the typeface?
Is it just that folks don't have Minion Pro installed? Because I see Minion Pro.
Looks like there aren't any external fonts being loaded in with code and it's relying on the user having the fonts installed locally. So if you don't have "Minion Pro" or "Calluna" installed locally it will default to Times New Roman.
There are no bad fonts only bad designers - Michael Beirut
this is wrong
Duh. ;-) The point is, every font has a useful context regardless of personal taste of it being 'bad'. A good designer should be able to take a crap font, tweak and typeset the hell outa it.
Depending on the appropriate context this could work as a starting point for a mark or icon that needs to be customized. But If u just type out stock dafonts well then...yea.
We are designers here right?
Can we all get on the same page with "Show DN"? It's for things you made.
Yep. Edited to now say “Site Design”.
This guy continues to have better PR than the Pope.
I always really enjoy seeing Frank's site redesigns and how his visual viewpoints have developed over time. Considering his time (and the ample amount of thought) spent in the game, he's a great vantage point through which to look at the rest of the web. thumbs up man! :)
I miss the last one! This new one is sans his work. I guess that's what his other site is for.
(But this new one looks nice as well. Times New Roman is a questionable partner for San Francisco.)
I thought people can't use San Francisco on non-Apple stuff?
He's only specifying the font and not hosting it. Non-Apple users get Roboto.
Ah... Makes sense. Thanks for clarifying.

I'm such a dumbass.
You seem to have some disease that makes your face change colors rapidly that you might want to get checked out. Besides that this looks pretty clean.

Frank upgrades his avatar relentlessly over the years. I predict in 2016 it will be a carved marble bust.
Loving the clean look, mainly because there are no cluttered elements or expensive animations. 10/10 would visit again.
If you need some extra resources for your site check out www.mockupcatalog.com bro. they got lots of useful things for websites.
